Object Lesson Message on the Meaning of Humility
Main - Objective - Students - Awareness - Identity
Main Objective: Students will gain awareness that identity and value are found in Christ alone. Although it is easy to get caught up in pride of what we do and how, it is more important to be humble and recognize God as the source of strength. Our heart’s intentions are what matter to the Lord. We can be happy in things we do, but we need to be sure we are doing them for God.
