A more comprehensive children's curriculum is also available in print. The diligence booklet includes four lessons that illustrate how God enables us to be diligent:

  1. "Do My Tasks with Excellence" features the story of Bezaleel's excellent work building the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant.
  2. "Follow Instructions Carefully" features the story of an unnamed prophet and the consequences of neglecting instructions.
  3. "Overcome Laziness" features the story of the slothful servant.
  4. "Finish My Assignments" features the story of Noah finishing the ark.

Learning diligence helps children understand that God has given us work to do, He has given us the ability to do it, and it is an honor and privilege to set our minds to eagerly accomplish His assignment to us.
