These [tag]Sunday school lessons for children[/tag] about [tag]King David[/tag] are about his generosity. The activities are for both younger and older children.
Once David was King, he didn’t Lord it over people that he had power and fame and extremely expensive belongings. He looked around for people that he could be nice to. He found one of Jonathan’s sons who was crippled in both feet. He gave him all that Jonathan and his father, King Saul,had once owned. It is better to give than to receive. David knew that and sets an example for us.
As children, we don’t often have money to work with, but we can still give with our hearts. We can color pictures for people who are sick and aren’t getting enough visitors. This activity provides an opportunity for children to become socially aware.
Have the younger children make get well pictures for someone in your church who is ill. This information should be available in your church bulletin’s prayer requests, or through the leader of your prayer chain if you don’t know of any personally.
You may also find someone on the prayer list of your church who may be housebound or having a hospital stay due to illness. Have your older [tag]Sunday school[/tag] students write to that person.
