Be Grateful for What We Have

Ordinary Time, Proper 6, Old Testament Lesson
Scripture: 1 Kings 21:1-10, (11-14), 15-21a

This week’s lesson tackles some very difficult themes: greed, power, envy, and murder to name a few. These themes are intimidating when it comes to teaching children. However, the theme which redeems the lesson is the one which brings us all to God – forgiveness and grace. In order to round out our lesson this week, we will add to the lectionary text verses 25-29 in which Ahab sees the error of his ways and seeks God’s forgiveness – which is granted him. Even the worst among us are worthy of Grace in the sight of the Lord.
