CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: The Prodigal Son
THEME: God is a loving Father!
SCRIPTURE: Luke 15:11-32
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 The Prodigal Son. The
theme was “God is a loving Father.” We learn so much from this parable
that Jesus told. One of the greatest things we see is God’s heart towards us.
He is our heavenly Father and this story speaks so much about our
relationship with Him. No matter what we may have done, the Father loves us
very much and is willing to forgive.
This week we will look at different aspects of this parable. We will look at
the father, the lost son and his brother; and learn valuable things from all of
them. Our prayer is that the Lord will teach us all more and more from His
wonderful word this week.
The section of scripture that we studied was Luke15:11-32. 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!
