CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: Parables of the Treasure
and the Pearl
THEME: We are God’s special treasure.
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 13:44-46
Welcome to Bible Time for Kids! Bible Time for Kids is a series of
daily devotions for children and their families. Our purpose is to
supplement our Sunday morning curriculum and give you an
opportunity to encourage your children to develop a daily devotional
life. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study
God’s Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about two parables that Jesus
told. They both had to do with something very valuable - treasure and a
pearl of great price. We learned that we are God’s special treasure. So
much so that He was willing to leave heaven in order to become a man and die
on the cross in order to “purchase” us.
He did it because He loves us. It wasn’t anything that we did or because of
who we are. We are a treasure to Him because He loves us and wants to
have a relationship with us. What an amazing thing that Jesus would pay that
great price in order to purchase us, His special treasure. Let’s learn more
about how much the Lord loves us as we look into God’s word each day.
The section of scripture that we studied was Matthew 13:44-46. The
following five devotions are based on either the scripture and/or the theme
for Sunday’s lesson. As a starting point it would be good for you to review
these verses with your children.
These devotions are designed to help you reinforce Sunday’s lesson
throughout the week with your children, provide some more ideas for the
application of God’s Word in your children’s lives and provide a tool to help
in family devotions.
Obviously children at various age levels will respond to the devotional in
different ways. You may want to add your own ideas to these to make them
more age appropriate.
May the Lord bless you as you study His Word together!
