Order-Discovering: All things for good.
Saying the memory verse together at suppertime will imprint it on the hearts of your children forever.
And we know in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
When you think of God working for your good, what do you think of? Do you think of good health, a comfortable lifestyle, a successful career? Can you still say it when you’ve had a bad diagnosis; you worry about putting food on the table, or losing your job, or your ability to do your job? I know I sure don’t. But this verse is not a guarantee of good things that I want. Rather it is a guarantee that whatever happens to me God will use for his good in my life.

This question is meant to help the children develop a biblical understanding of God, who He is and what He does. The "answer" is not meant for parents to read to their children. Rather its purpose is to assist parents in guiding the conversation to this biblical understanding. We encourage you to use an open Bible in this conversation, building biblical literacy and well as a biblical theology.
How does God use the problem with Chameleon Chaos to help someone?
God uses the malfunction of the roller coaster to give Liz and his friends the opportunity to tell Spike someone about God, how God is in control and that we should trust in God when we are afraid.
Romans 8: 28 tells us that we know in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. So every day we can wake up and say “I will trust You today” No matter what may come my way.
