A more comprehensive children's curriculum is also available in print. The discernment booklet includes four lessons that illustrate how God enables us to come to the right conclusion:

  1. "Distinguish Between Right and Wrong" features the story of the Jerusalem Church consulting the Scriptures.
  2. "Look Beneath the Surface" features the story of God's unexpected choice for a king.
  3. "Keep From Judging Hastily" features the story of Solomon's wisdom being put to the test.
  4. "Not Repeat Mistakes" features the story of Samson straying from God's call.

The study of discernment teaches children how to differentiate truth from error, so they are able to respond with the right steps of action.
