Faith Kids @ Home: February 12, 2023

The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, February 12. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.

The Life of Solomon

Read: 1 Kings 2:1-4; 3:1-15; 8:1-9:9; 11

Ask your child:

  • What did Solomon request from God? Wisdom
  • Why was God pleased with Solomon’s request? Wisdom would help Solomon honor God and lead Israel to do the same.
  • What did Solomon build for God? The temple.
  • What did God expect from Israel’s kings? Complete devotion to the Lord.
  • Why did God punish Solomon? Solomon married many pagan wives and led Israel into idolatry.

Emphasize this principle: God wants our full devotion. Therefore, we should pursue him faithfully.


  • Ask God for wisdom to faithfully obey Him.
  • Pray for deliverance from tempation.
  • Spend regular time reading God’s Word.

Sing:   “More Precious Than Silver”

Prepare for next week: 1 Kings 11:35–38; 12:1–33; 14:1–18

Memorize for Feb 12-Mar 12: “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)*
