PURPOSE OF THE LESSON
Teach children that God created the entire world with all perfection using just His word.
VERSE TO MEMORIZE
“But God made the earth by his power; He founded the world by His wisdom…”
Bring a big and colorful picture of a beautiful flower and a picture of a landscape in which there are trees, flowers, animals, rivers, etc. (easy to find in websites). Educator, if you want, you can bring the book to show the pictures to your class. Start the class by saying: Children, see what a beautiful flower, watch the details. Imagine how God was careful when He created flowers, trees, animals and every little thing in this landscape (show the picture). Today we will learn how it all came to exist.
COMPLETING THE CREATION
LAST WEEK we learned that God created the world. Do you remember what He created on first and second days? (Wait their participation). On first day He created light, and on second day He created the sky.
Each day God created new and wonderful things. On third day He said: Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together into one place so the dry land appears. God named the dry land earth, and the waters He put together ocean. The earth produced plants and herbs that gave seeds of its own kind; and the trees produced fruits.
On fourth day God said: Let there be lights in the sky, they will shine, light up
the land and mark the days, years and seasons. What a great wisdom! God has thought in everything. The biggest luminary would shine during the day and the smallest at night. The biggest was called Sun and the smallest Moon. Stars were also created that day. God saw it was good and the earth was getting even more beautiful and He pleased His own creation.
Next day God created sea animals: fishes, whales, sharks, and other little
animals. And he also said: And let birds fly above the sky, and birds appeared.
The land animals: domestic ones, that we create in our homes; the savages,
that live in zoos or in the jungles and those who live crawling on the floor were all created on the sixth and last day of creation. The animals used to live released, grazing, running, swimming or flying.
God blessed the animals so they could increase the number of their species
and fill in the earth with their puppies. How nice! The earth was done, so beautiful with trees, plants, tasty fruits; but there was something missing in that blessed place.
And God decided to make His last creation, but we will talk about it next week.
Friends, God created the entire earth using just the power of His word and
made it all with pleasure and satisfaction. He is mighty, creator of everything, and all things are under His domain and under His powerful hand. So, children, we should take care of nature, animals and all living beings for everything is our God’s creation.
Educator, write in a cardboard, with big letters, the sentence: God created the
world using His word. Cut the cardboard in several pieces, as a puzzle. Stick
masking tape behind each part of the cardboard but hide one piece. Prepare
everything before starting your class.
Start this moment giving the other parts of the cardboard to some kids and
say: You should set up this puzzle. There is a message in it referring today’s story.
Ask them to set it up on the board or on the wall. They will certainly miss a part of it then stick the missing part. Read the sentence with your class and say: For us to understand the message it was necessary all parts to be in their right place. Children, when God created the world, He made it with all perfection and He was so careful in putting everything in the right place - just as the pieces of a puzzle (point to the message) should be put correctly. The animals, trees, plants, the Sun, the Moon, the stars, they all were created with so much love by God; He saw that everything was good.
Class, the Bible says: “But God made the earth by his power; He founded the
world by His wisdom…” (Jeremiah 10.12). Our God is powerful; all creation came to exist through His word and so what is missing in your life will exist if you obey and believe in the power of God, amen!
