Today’s Episode is based off 1 Kings 16:28-34; 17:1-4; 18 in the Bible
“I will trust God with all my heart.”
Memorize this together as a family this week!
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”
2 Chronicles 16:9a(NKJV)
ACTIVITY: SKETCH GAME
How to play.
- Whiteboard, marker and eraser
- Timer – stopwatch, timer app
Today, we will play a game where someone will draw an image on the board and everyone else will try to guess what the image is. Each image is something that we will find in the world which isn’t necessarily bad but it could distract us and take God’s place in our hearts. When that happens, it can become an idol to us. We will have a short discussion on how the image could become an idol once the image is guessed.
Come, let us start to guess!
Have children come forward one at a time. Quietly whisper an item the child should draw. Start the timer. Allow about ten seconds to think about the drawing and then start the timer for one minute. As the child draws without using any words, the other children will try to guess.
As an optional, for a fun challenge, you can blindfold the child that will draw and see if the other children can guess what the image is.
Suggested drawing list:
- Sports—a ball, racquet, bat, etc.
- School or education
- Hobby or interest
- Idol or statue
- Cell phone
- Video game
- Add your own
Great job drawing and guessing! God wants us to keep away from anything that may take His place in our hearts. Anything can become an idol to us if we are not careful to keep God first in our lives. Let us shout our SuperTruth today, ‘I will trust God with all my heart’!
- What do the Ten Commandments say about worshiping other gods? (Read Exodus 20:3-4)
- What should we do if we have doubts when we pray? (Read James 1:5-8)
- How can we be sure that God will answer our prayer? (Read Mark 11:24)
PRAY: Heavenly Father, You alone is the true God. Help us to place You first in our lives – far above anything and anyone else. In Jesus name, Amen!
