Lesson Learned: God wants us to shine bright for Him.
Materials Needed: apple, star shape cookie cutter
14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
Talking Points: God wants us to shine bright, like a star. Stars can be seen by everyone in the night. God wants everyone to see us, too, doing things for Him.
Questions: Have you seen the stars at night before? What color are they? Are they bright? Did you know God made the stars?
Cut an apple into thin slices. Using a cookie cutter, let the child cut out star shapes in the apple slices.
Song to Sing:
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Prayer: God, we want to shine bright for you everyday so that everyone knows we are Your children. Please give us the strength to everything without grumbling or arguing. Amen!
