Object lesson: ‘Listening to God’s word’


A very simple object lesson with a large impact…

This is a really enjoyable and simple object lesson that you can use to visually demonstrate to children how people listen to God’s word, and how we can best listen to Gods word.

It is ideal for a children’s moment in church, for using in the classroom or in a Sunday school programme. You can also use this idea to talk to the children about the importance of the Bible and Bible study.

This idea can be combined with a Bible lesson about the parable of the sower in Matthew 13:1-23, Mark 4:1-20 and Luke 8: 4-15. It is also fairly simple to link it to the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5: 22 – 23.
