"God showers His love on all who call to Him" (Psalm 86:5).
Preschool to Grade 2.
Hide the cards you have prepared around the room or outside play area.
Form two to four teams and allow them five minutes to search
and find the hidden treasures. When the time is up, the teams
must bring their treasures and display them. Review the
treasures they found and discount any "false" treasures. The
team with the most "true" treasures wins the game.
You can then hide the cards again and replay the game as time permits.
There are many things that are treasures to us. You would not
like someone to steal all your toys, would you? (Let the children
). No, they are things that you value and want to
look after. But, when they get old they are eventually thrown
God wants us to have only treasures in our hearts and lives that will
last forever and ever. God has given us the Bible so that
we can learn all about Jesus and how we can please Him. The
best treasure we can have is to know God's great love for us, and
that we are one of His precious children!
If you have asked Jesus into your heart, then He is your Best Friend!
What other true treasures has God has given you? (Let the
children respond). Yes, God has given you your family, your
friends and your teachers.
Other True Treasures:
Can you think of any other true treasures? (Let the children
). Well, I can think of one. As we get closer to
God, we can feel His warmth and love. But, if we turn away from
God, it becomes harder to feel the warmth and love He has for us.
God showers His love on all who call to Him (Psalm 86:5), and that is
a wonderful treasure! So make sure you always obey God and pray
to Him everyday. And then you will have many true treasures.
