Does God make mistakes?

God created all the animals, plants and trees.  When He was finished, God knew that He had done all things well.  God never makes mistakes and when He made you and me, He did His best work.

The Bible says that when God had finished His creation on the sixth day, He saw all that He had made, and that it was very good (Genesis 1:31).

We are Precious!

In Matthew 10:30-31, Jesus said:

"Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
So don't be afraid as you are worth more than many sparrows."

Do you know how many hairs are on your head? (Let the children respond).  How many did you say? (Let the children respond).  Well I don't know how many there are, but I do know that God knows exactly how many hairs are on your head, because He cares for each one of you very dearly!

Yes, we are very precious to God and that's why He made a perfect Garden.  And we know that God is making a perfect Heaven for us that we will live in for ever.

Garden of Eden Model

And so we are going to make a Garden of Eden plate.  I want you to use the coloured clay and make Adam and Eve and some animals.   And then you can make plants and trees to decorate your plate and make the most beautiful Garden.

It will remind you of how God made each one of you perfect and how He loves you very dearly!  Our memeory verse says:

"God has done all things well" (Mark 7:37).

Let's say that together again.  Take your card home and hang it up in your bedroom and it will remind you every day that God has done all things well and we are precious to Him.  What does your Garden of Eden say? (Let the children respond).  Yes, it says: "God Cares" and "You are very precious to Him!"

God bless.
