Initiative

-is seeing what needs to be done and doing it.

“Work at everything you do with all your heart. Work as if you were working for the Lord.”
Colossians 3:23a (NIrV)

Initiative isn’t just some practical principle; it’s really a spiritual principle that starts with God. God took initiative on our behalf. When God saw our broken relationship with Him, He sent Jesus to make it right. And because we are made in God’s image, we are wired to be able to take initiative and get things done.

All month long, we’re heading to the Old Testament to talk more about one of the greatest examples of someone taking initiative: a man by the name of Nehemiah. This month, we’ll break down the story of Nehemiah into four segments that will give kids insight into this idea of initiative.

When you see something big to be done, ask God for help.

When you see what needs to be done, don’t wait for someone else to do it.

When you see people in need, don’t wait for someone else to help them.

You can trust God to help you do what needs to be done.
