The Patriarchs: God's Plan Unfolds 1
Lesson 1: The Tower of Babel
Big Idea: Live your life to bring glory to God.
Scripture: Genesis 11:1-9
Memory Verse: "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” - 1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV
Word Up!: Give glory to God!
“Where do all of the different languages come from?” Many children will not know the answer to this question. This week's Growth Narrative lesson gives an opportunity to help the saved children learn how they can glorify God with their lives rather than bringing glory to themselves. The people in the story were going their own way and seeking their own glory by disobeying God’s command to fill the Earth. The children will see how going God’s way is honoring to Him.
The Gospel Spotlight in this lesson uses tower illustrations to talk about different ideas on how to get to Heaven. The children will see that Jesus is the only way they can come to God.
