This Sunday’s Treasure Seeker lesson was from 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17. 2 Thessalonians is a letter written to the church in place called Thessalonica. In this passage the church was being encouraged to stand firm in its beliefs. You can find it below.
In Treasure Seekers we spoke about what it means to encourage others. This passage also talks about giving thanks to God. For our activity we made edible cornucopias and thought about ways we can express gratitude to God.
In this season of Thanksgiving, how does your family like to show thanks?
13 But we must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 For this purpose he called you through our proclamation of the good news, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by our letter. 16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, 17 comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.
