LESSON TWENTY NINE 11/10/2020
Welcome to Kidzone. Today we begin an 8 week series called “The Parables of Jesus.” This series will go through 8 of Jesus' parables to help kids understand what they mean as well as how they can apply them to their life. Our first lesson is called “The Sower.” When Jesus taught people, he often used stories or parables. The parables of Jesus have much to teach us if we are willing to listen. Encourage your kids to spend time in the Bible and in prayer this week, and pray that God will help them to begin growing in their faith.
Bottom Line: Parables are stories that reveal God’s truth.
Objective: Kids will learn that a parable is a short story meant to help us learn an important lesson.
Memory Verse: “Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears should listen.’” Mark 4:9 (NIrV)
Scripture to read: Mark 4:1-20, Parable of the Sower
Kids will be introduced to what a parable is in this lesson. They will also study the parable of the sower to learn that God’s Word has to be number one in our life and if we try to make other things more important than following Jesus and obeying His word, it can cause our faith to stop growing and die out.
Activity: Have the kids plant a seed in a small styrofoam cup filled with soil so that as this series goes on, they can see their seed beginning to grow. Before planting, let them decorate their cups with crayons or markers.
Make this week’s lesson real:
Take a walk through the yard or the neighbourhood this week. Where do you see plants growing well? Do you see any struggling? Ask the kids what they need to do so their faith will grow.
Here are some great discussion starters:
- What is a parable?
- Why did Jesus teach in parables?
- What is the message of the Parable of the Sower?
Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse.
hank you for the parables of Jesus. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thank you for your support and may God bless you all!
