In Orange, we talk a lot about strategically turning up the 3 dials at different ages as a kid grows up. With First Look, we focus on the Wonder dial—looking at how much God loves us, how God made us and how Jesus wants to be our friend forever. Then in 252Basics, we build on that and zone in on the Discovery dial—to figure out that we can trust God no matter what, we need to make the wise choice and we should treat others the way we want to be treated.
