Bible Story: No Train, No Gain (Daniel Trained in Babylon) • Daniel 1

Bottom Line: When you know what God says, it can help you stand for what’s right.

Memory Verse: “Don’t ever get tired of doing the right thing.” 2 Thessalonians 3:13, NIrV

Life App: Conviction—standing for what is right even when others don’t.

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

CATCH THEM DOING IT RIGHT

by Reggie JoinerSeveral years ago, our team was asked to design a program to help public schools teach kids character. One of the tools we provided was a “Value-able” card to award a child with free ice cream when they did something that demonstrated respect, responsibility, or kindness. We gave out enough cards so teachers could catch every kid doing something right at least once a month. But at the end of the first month, 90% of the cards had not been given out. We realized that a lot of teachers, much like many parents, were so programmed to correct kids behavior that they had never learned how to pro-actively acknowledge positive behavior. So, the next month, we included a few tips to help teachers look for specific ways to catch kids doing it right.
