CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: Shipwreck at Malta
THEME: We should have courage and
never lose heart because God
SCRIPTURE: Acts 27:13 – 28:16
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 Paul’s Shipwreck at
Malta. The theme was “We should have courage and never lose heart
because God if faithful.” Have you ever been in a situation that was really
scary? That is where we find Paul this week. The book of Acts is exciting
as we see Paul in the middle of a storm and the boat is about to sink. Will
Paul become afraid or trust in the Lord?
Paul puts his trust in the Lord and we see how that God used Him greatly to
make a difference in the lives of the sailors, the soldiers and the fellow
prisoners on the ship. God can use when bad things are happening in our
lives. Let’s remember to always keep our eyes on Jesus, even in the middle
of scary things!
The section of scripture that we studied was Acts 27:13-28:16. 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 app
