Investing God's Word Into Our Children

Firm Foundations 8:1 – Holiness October 27, 2010

Theme: Holiness means goodness all the way through!
“LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous…” (Psalm 15:1-2)

Okay, so my definition of holiness isn’t exactly theological and definitely isn’t complete, but I think it’s provides a good introduction to my little ones. As they get older, we’ll explore the topic of holiness more in depth. But for now, bear with my simple definition!

Scripture Memory: Review Psalm 119:9-11. To keep the maze theme going from a few lessons back, try out this maze Scripture review game.

Catechism Q&A: Q.  In what condition did God make Adam and Eve? A. He made them holy and happy.

The Beauty of Holiness: Do your children know what “holy” means? Read Psalm 15 and point out the various attributes of the man who can stay in the Lord’s temple. He’s a pretty good guy, isn’t he! Holiness means being perfect all the way through! No faults at all. Ask your children if you are holy. They’re probably pretty aware of at least some of your sins! Talk about some of your faults honestly, emphasizing that apart from Jesus, you are NOT good all the way through. In fact, no one is! But amazingly enough, Adam and Eve didn’t have any  faults when they were first created. It was pretty wonderful!

For a fun (and yummy) object lesson that illustrates the definition of holiness,  grab some chocolate candy bars and check out this “Pure Goodness” lesson from kidssundayschool.com.

Notebook: Draw a smiley face! Or fill the box with smiley face stickers. Just make the square look happy!
