In Case the Take-Home-Page didn't make it home this week. This is what we talked about in RAKlets on June 21, 2013:
This week as we we talked about the importance of listening to God’s Word being taught. We read Paul’s instructions to Timothy about the importance of preaching the Word and decided that if it was important for the good news of Jesus to be taught and preached regularly, then it was important for us to listen when it is taught.
Here are some ideas for your family-worship this week. Read more about family worship here.

Read this great article to see that the Gospel is also important for your Toddler: The Gospel Matters for Your Toddler.
Do you remember our Bible story from last week? Last week we learned that the Bible is God’s Word. We learned that every word of the Bible is spoken by God and every word teaches us about God and how He rescued His people when Jesus died on the cross in our place.â€¨â€¨
Our story today tells us that it’s very important to listen whenever someone is talking about God or whenever someone is teaching us from the Bible. To make sure that we remember the importance of listening, I want you to hold your hand up around your ear every time I say one of the following words.. . .God, Jesus or Bible.
â€¨â€¨In the Bible, we read a letter from a man named Paul to a man named Timothy. Paul was traveling around the world teaching people about Jesus. Paul left Timothy in a city called Ephesus so that he could tell the people there about Jesus. â€¨â€¨
Paul wrote this letter to Timothy to tell him how to tell people about Jesus and why it was important for him to teach people the Bible. Paul told Timothy that the whole Bible is from God and that it’s all about Jesus. Then, Paul told Timothy that the most important thing He could do was to always teach people the truth about how Jesus came to earth and died on the cross to pay for our sin.
â€¨Paul said that Timothy need to teach people about Jesus and people needed to listen as they learned about Jesus. That’s one of the most important things that we can learn from the Bible. Whenever someone is teaching us about God, or telling us the good news about Jesus, or reading to us from the Bible we need to listen. â€¨
The Bible says that when we listen to God’s Words in the Bible that we’ll believe that Jesus died in our place.
