The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, May 17. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
Jesus Feeds the Multitude
Read: Matthew 14:13-21
Ask your child:
- Why did Jesus ask the disciples to give the people food? Jesus was testing the faith of His disciples in an effort to help them trust His ability to solve impossible problems.
- What does Jesus’ miracle reveal about His person and authority? The miracle proved that Jesus is God and deserving of our faith and obedience.
Emphasize this principle: Nothing is impossible for God. Therefore, we should trust and submit to Him.
- Believe in Jesus as God.
- Treat those who need Jesus with compassion.
Praise: “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name”
Prepare for next week: Matthew 14:22-33
Memorize for Apr 26-May 31: “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9 (ESV)** Preschool verse in bold
