Resisting Fleshly Desires

Children explore the difference between giving into their fleshly desires and acting out of love with mercy and humility.

Lessons

God is Just

As a result of studying about Godís fair and just nature, children will understand why it is important to confess their sins to God and ask for His forgiveness on a regular basis.

God Speaks Through Micah

In this lesson, children learn how God spoke to His people through the prophet Micah. They will also learn what God requires from everyone who belongs to Him: to treat others fairly, to show mercy, and to walk humbly with the Lord.

The Cost of Sin

After completing this lesson, the children will realize that because of sin they are separated from God, and that because God is just, He must punish sin. However, He is also merciful, and does not want to punish us.

The Prodigal Son

With this lesson the children will have a good idea of what matters in life. The choice between material possessions or relationship will determine how they would want to live their lives, and hopefully, it will make them realize that a life full of materialism cannot fulfill an empty heart.

The Unmerciful Servant

After finishing this lesson children will see that we need to forgive others just as God forgives us.

Object Talks
