childrens-ministry-big questionI love hide and seek! Is your favorite part the hiding or the seeking? The theme this week has been “Seek Him!” Today’s BIG question is “What does it mean to seek God?”

That is a very good question. Because of what Jesus did for us when He died on the cross, we can be friends with God. Our relationship with God is restored. But we want that relationship to grow. We want to get to know God better.

Seeking God is all about building our relationship with Him. We seek God in order to love Him more and get to know Him more.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Lost and Found vs. Buried Treasure

If something is lost, we will look for it. It could be something valuable or something we could live without. We won’t look forever, though. We may eventually find it or we may not.

A buried treasure isn’t lost. Someone knows where it is, we just need directions to find it. A treasure is something valuable. If it’s really important to us, we’ll keep seeking until we find it.

God is like a buried treasure. He’s not lost. He’s given us the directions to find Him in His word.

We find out who God is and what He wants us to do by reading the Bible. Even though we can’t see God, we can seek Him and find Him in the Bible!

We can also seek God in prayer – we can talk to Him even though we can’t see Him!
