Bible Story: Bigger Barns | Luke 12:16-21
Main Point: I can share when I have a lot.
Memory Verse: “Let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7a (NIV)
It’s time to pull out all the construction tools and get ready to build into kids a love for others. The Bible is full of great examples of how to love others. Whether we are loving by helping or sharing what little we may have, we can love like Jesus, with an unconditional love.
In this week’s lesson, a man builds bigger barns to hold his crop rather than sharing it.
The farmer in the story didn’t show love because he was selfish and wanted to keep everything for himself. Jesus wants us to love and help each other. We can do that by sharing what we have. We can share when we have a lot.
eKidz At Home Activities
Family activities to review the lesson lesson with your child this week:
- At BathTime ask your child to say a name each time you say, “I can love . . .” Any name works because God wants us to love everyone!
- At PlayTime let your child stack cans of food and then bag them to share. Talk about the man who didn’t share, but built bigger barns instead!
