Memory Verse

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”

Audio Icon   Ephesians 2:10



In this episode, Liz and his friends were paired up with kids from a special-needs class. They learned not to judge people by what’s on the outside but to look inside to find value—the way God does with you.

All of us have strengths and weaknesses. You might be musical. You might be good at math. You might run fast or be a great cook. Or you might be bad at some (or all) of those things. God has a plan for each of us, including you. There are good works you can do for him because he designed you that way (2 Timothy 2:21). That doesn’t mean that you can do anything you want to. But it does mean that you can do good things for the Lord.

Want to dig deeper into how God gives us the strength to do good works? Check out Psalm 28:7; Colossians 1:10-12; 2 Timothy 1:7.


What are some good works you can do for God? Think about your talents. How can you use them at your church?

  • If you’re good at cooking, provide a meal for another family in need.
  • If you’re musical, join a choir or help lead music for a class for younger kids.
  • If you’re strong and active, volunteer to help families in the church clean their yards.

What other good works can you do? Remember, everyone—yes, you too!—has strengths they can use for the Lord.
