What´s on Your Label?
Mealtime Prayer: “Dear Lord, a name isn’t something I can see or taste or touch. But help
me to remember that it sticks with me wherever I go. Amen.”
Appetizer: Grab three cans of food from the cupboard. What things on the label make customers
want to buy them? If your mom and dad were cans in a supermarket, what good
things would you put on their labels? “Hard worker”? “Good cook”? “Generous neighbor”?
What labels would you have?
Main Course: If you had to choose between “Slimy Green-Grass Pudding” and “Chocolate
Delight,” which would you choose? How did the name of the label affect your decision?
How are people also labeled by their actions? What labels do we give others? What
label do your neighbors know you by?
First Samuel 18:30 says, “David met with more success than the rest of Saul’s officers,
and his name became well known.” David’s name is carried on to this day. What good
things is David remembered for?
Table Talk:
• How will others treat you if your name is respected? If it isn’t respected?
• What can you do to make sure you have a good name? (Read Proverbs 3:3–4.)
• What label would you give yourself?
Vitamins and Minerals: “A good name is more desirable than great riches”
(Proverbs 22:1).
