Character Study: Diligence

Welcome to the 8th study in my Character Study series based on Diligence. (Click on the image or link below to download a pdf of this study.)

A Character study: Diligence


Other books required for this study: The Bible (any version will do!)

Each day you will learn a verse, read a story where this sin is illustrated, then discuss the consequences of this sin followed up by the blessings of obedience. I encourage discussion with your children on ways they can help one another to stay free from this sin. Putting these ideas into practice on a daily basis will help them to become habit.

Our daily/weekly challenge: “Remember, whatever we do is done for the Lord, go all out!”

I have a sticker sheet and anyone caught making good choices, that’s right “caught making good choices” gets a sticker. I tend to only respond when someone is making bad decisions, and this helps me to focus on the good instead. Whoever has the most stickers at the end of the week gets a prize, and frankly if I think my kids are actually trying their best then everyone gets a prize.

I hope this study blesses your family as it has mine!

    Will you always post the new character trait study for the week, so we can print it? These look great, thanks!

    Yes, I've already posted about 4 or 5, so if you look at the bottom of this post you can see links to 3 of them. You can also go to the tabbed box at the top right side of my blog and click on 'topics' then select "Character Studies"
