The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, January 17. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
God Judges Belshazzar for His Pride
Passage: Daniel 5
Principle: Believers respond to God’s warning before they are judged.
Praise: “Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart”
Prompt: Ask your child these questions:
- Why did Belshazzar use the vessels from the Lord’s temple?
- What happened to the wall, and what did the writing mean?
Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:
- By repenting when others are punished.
- By telling others about God’s judgment.
This Week: As a family, read selected portions of Daniel 5.
Next Week: Daniel 6
Memory Verse: When pride comes, then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom. Proverbs 11:2
