Lesson Learned: We must listen to God.
Materials Needed: pillow and blanket
15 The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.
19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
God tells us to listen to Him. Just like when your mom and dad tell you to listen to them and obey them, God wants you to listen to Him and do what He says. Questions: How do you listen to your mom and dad? Why is it important to listen to them? Why does God want us to listen to Him?
Activity: Have the child lay down on the ground on the blanket and pillow and close their eyes. Tell them to listen to the sounds around them. Ask them what they can hear.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for giving us ears to hear things! Help us to listen and obey your teachings all of our lives. Amen!
