Advent 2011: Day 2

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

DAY 2: Wonderful Counselor (Isaiah 9:6) 

[Note: The King James Bible seperates this name into 2 titles. We study them as one title here.] 

Read and Discuss the verse and the meanings of the words. What qualities do they ascribe to Jesus? 

Lesson: What is a Counselor? What are some other verses in the Bible that talk about counselors? What are the character qualities of a Counselor? (Close to us--accessible, confidential--we can take our intimate matters to him, compassionate, cognizant--of our needs, capable, communication--we communicate to Christ in prayer but how does He communicate with us?) 

Activity: Design a page for your journal showing Wonderful Counselor. 

Activity: Language Arts--Present your children with a "problem." What kind of counsel will they give. Have them write it out. Focus on what they are learning in grammar. Use adjectives, verbs, don't forget to capitalize--whatever they need to be working on at the time. Include writings in Christmas journal. 

Alternative: Have them write about a time when they received wise (or foolish) counsel. What happened.
