Geocaching is a fun, modern day treasure hunt in which you use a GPS or smart phone and plug in coordinates that lead to a hidden cache or treasure, usually a small token or object.  There are actually many hidden caches in Racine.  Check it out on the internet, it’s a great family activity!  Using the theme of geocaching, we will explore Bible stories about King Solomon, and find great treasures in the wisdom found in Proverbs. 

Wisdom is finding out what you should do and doing it. When we seek wisdom and ask God for it, He will give it to us. He will help us figure out the wise choice when we need to make a decision.  We can find God’s wisdom by reading the Bible and asking trusted Christ-followers.

The monthly memory verse is: “Choose my teaching instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than fine gold. Wisdom is worth more than rubies. Nothing you want can compare with her,” Proverbs 8:10-11, NIrV.  No matter how big or small the decision, God will help you make the wise choice. It might be tempting to compromise wisdom for quick and easy gain, but Solomon teaches us that choosing wisdom first is best.
