Children's Sermon On Doing The Work Of The Lord

Children's Sermon On Doing The Work Of The Lord.

This week Father Andrew brought a bible, a keyboard, a plumbers wrench, garden tools, and a pencil and asked the children which one they thought they needed to do the Lord's work. Of course they answered the bible. He went on to explain that while that was true, whatever we do in word or deed should be the work of the lord. Whether we are gardeners, office workers, plumbers, or whatever our jobs; we should do our work the best we can for the Lord. Then he picked up the pencil and told the children that when they are in school, they also should do their best and work for the Lord.

Children's Sermon On The Bible

Children's Sermon On The Bible.

This month Father Andrew brought a stop light with him and explained that the red means stop and green means go. He told them that the Bible is like a stop light. It tells us things not to do (Such as in the Ten Commandments). Do not steal, kill, lie. Father went on to tell the children that it also tells us things to do such as be kind, help the poor, and love your neighbor.
