VERSE FOCUS: “You have done great and wonderful things.” 2 Samuel 7:23 (NIRV)
BIBLE STORY: The Beginning | Genesis 1
This month we are learning, “God made everything wonderful.” God made the sun and moon, the animals, the trees, the ocean, and God made us! We will learn the story, “The Beginning,” from Genesis 1. The world was empty in the beginning, but God had a plan.
He created dark nights, bright days, a big blue sky, and puffy clouds. He even created a big ocean with lots of fish, the ground with flowers and trees, and animals to creep and crawl. But God’s favorite and best creature was a person- Adam! He saw that He made everything wonderful and then God rested.
We made a Bible story mat to help us remember God made everything wonderful. Place the Meal Time Bible Story Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your child:
- Look at the picture. What do you see in the picture? (a river, flowers, mountains, and animals)
- Who do you think made those things? (God made everything.)
Say, “That’s right, God made everything. Do you know what God’s favorite thing to make was? You! Everything God made is wonderful and that means you are wonderful because you were created by God!”
