We had a lot of fun in Sunday School today.
We just ended a 5 week study on Daniel from the time he was captured as a young man until the exciting story in the deep, dark, scary Lion's Den!
I've been letting the kids tell me the WHOLE story after we do a particularly detailed study about a Bible character. Each week I review from the week before and add the next "chapter". After about 5 weeks, it's their turn to teach teacher. They love it! I add lots of little interesting facts and details in my stories and I'm always amazed that they remember and put them in too!
This week I printed out the verse
Proverbs 6:6 "Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:"
They instantly knew the ants.....and they should, we all have about a million in our homes!
Some quick points I brought out that we can learn from the ant during the lesson:
1. The ants are BUSY not laying around sleeping. Have you ever seen a sleeping ant?
2. Do you see the ants sitting around bossing the others? Even the queen is busy laying eggs. (ewww)
3. In the ant colony everyone has jobs and responsibilities.
4. Will you be wise like the little ant and be a hard worker?
