|Time for God|
|How much time in a busy day do we have
Because of their busy lives and their desire to have as much fun as possible, children often place God in the back seat. This activity will help kids see where they are spending their time and show how little time they reserve for God.
Activity chart handout
From 10 to 15 minutes
Choices, Contentment, Idols, Priorities, Walking with God, Honor God
Grades 3-6 (Ages 8-12)
Before class, print or make copies of the handout for each child.
What you will do:
Give children a copy of the Activity Chart, and read to them the instructions at the top of the page. After the kids have filled out the chart, discuss selections. Then have them all turn to and read Matthew 6:21 and 24. Discuss the meaning of these verses explaining how God wants us to make Him the biggest part of our day. (See optional application below)
List of Activities:
You can also use this activity to help kids understand that anything we put before God can become for us like an idol. God wants no other gods before Him, but if we put our time and effort into something other than God, if we make it a priority in our life, even watching television, it can become the same as worshiping an idol in God's eyes. Explain to the children that there is nothing wrong with watching television, or playing sports, or whatever, just so long as God is still first.
