No Leftover Thanks Object Lesson

This is a great object lesson for the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

No Leftover Thanks

Verse:  Ephesian 5:20 (ICB)  Always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Supplies Needed: Tupperware Containers

Read the verse and talk about how important it is to always give God thanks. Thanksgiving to God is more important than even eating Thanksgiving dinner.

Say this in your own words:

How many of you have some of these containers in your refrigerator? I always have lots of leftovers after Thanksgiving. Name some leftovers you might have. There’s one thing I don’t have leftover from Thanksgiving though. Thanksgiving is a day set aside to thank God for his blessings. But we shouldn’t give God thanks only on Thanksgiving. When we do that, it’s like serving God leftover thanks. We should thank God every day for his blessings. 

Halloween Object Lesson

Jesus and the Jack-O-Lanterns

This object lesson is perfect to use at Halloween. Something that people use as decoration will remind children how Jesus saves them from their sin.

Needed: 2 jack-o-lanterns. One should have a frown carved, and should be warped and ugly. It shouldn’t be cleaned out completely and shouldn’t have a light in it. If you can, leave it to rot for a few days. The more disgusting it is, the better. The second jack-o-lantern should be clean, with a smile on its face and a candle in it.

Everywhere you go at this time of the year, you see jack-o-lanterns. Did you know jack-o-lanterns can remind you of how Jesus saved you. Before Jesus came into your heart, you were like this jack-o-lantern. Show first jack-o-lantern. You were full of sin and dirty inside. You had no light inside you, and you were very unhappy. But Jesus came into your heart and cleaned all the sin inside. Show the second jack-o-lantern. He gave you peace and put a smile on your face. He even shines His light through you. So everywhere you go this Halloween, when you see a jack-o-lantern, let it remind you of what Jesus did when He saved you.

5 Finger Lord’s Prayer

The 5 Finger Prayer

1. Praise

Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name

The prayer starts out by praising God for who He is. Just as we can’t do anything without our thumb, we can’t do anything without God.

2. I Want What God Wants

Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.

Pointing your second finger toward Heaven, teach children to pray “I want what God wants.”

3. Biggest chunk of prayer

Give us this day our daily bread.

Our third finger is our biggest finger, just like praying about our needs and the needs of others takes the longest time in prayer.

4. Relationships

And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

The ring finger represents relationships. We ask God to forgive our sins so we have a right relationship with God. We ask Him to help us forgive those who have offended us so we have a right relationship with others.

5. Smallest Finger

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Your pinky finger is your smallest finger. That’s why we use it when we ask God to deliver us from temptation and the evil one. Compared to God, the devil is very small.

End With Power

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Remind the children to use their thumb as they end the prayer with praise. Have them bring their thumb over their other fingers to make a fist. This reminds them that their prayer are powerful.
