HERE’S WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT

Bible Story: ​Don’t Have a Cow (golden calf) • Exodus 32:1­35

Bottom Line: ​When you think you can’t wait, think about what’s true.

Memory Verse: ​“Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:14, NIrV

Life App: ​Patience—waiting until later for what you want now.

Basic Truth: ​I can trust God no matter what.

HAVE PATIENCE

When I was a kid my mom taught us a song about a snail named Herbert who needed to learn to have patience. Being the awesome big sister that I was, I often sang it to my brother whenever he was getting impatient. Of course, this always helped to bring him patience—not! Soon, this silly song became our way of irritating each other whenever we recognized that we were about to lose our patience.

Several years later, as I was raising four little kids and feeling a little stressed, I would find myself singing that song. As I watched my little girls growing impatient with each other or with that shoe they just couldn’t tie, I would sing them the song about the impatient snail.

When I was a kid, I thought my mom was teaching us that song to help us learn patience. But now that I’m older, I realize she was singing that song to remind herself to have patience.
