WHAT YOU WILL DO:
Give each child a pencil or marker and a copy of the word search puzzle. Read Exodus 34:14 and explain that God’s jealousy is motivated by His love for us. When people are jealous towards others, it is a sin. When God is jealous, it is holy and just because we have chosen to make idols (anything that takes the place of our affection for God) more important He is.
The words can be found in any direction. Challenge the students to find them all.
