Faith Kids @ Home: January 1, 2023

The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, January 1. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.

Israel Disobeys God

Read: Judges 1-3

Ask your child:

  • What cycle was repeated throughout the book of Judges? Israel rebelled against God; God judged Israel through it’s enemies; Israel cried out for relief; God provided deliverance through the judges.
  • What was a judge, and what was his or her job in Israel? Judges were leaders who strengthened and delivered Israel from peril.

Emphasize this principle: God expects our full devotion. Therefore, we should obey Him.


  • Identify and forsake any desire that is stronger than your desire to please God.
  • Thank God for showing mercy to sinners.

Sing: “Create in Me a Clean Heart”

Prepare for next week:  Read Ruth 1-4

Memorize for Dec 11-Jan 1: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” John 14:6 (NIV)*
