Hooray! We have just completed the entire month of Psalm 23! Besides the activities shared earlier on Week 20 of ABCJLM, here are other accompanying activities:
Lesson #1: My shepherd takes care of me
Bible story: The Good Shepherd
Message: Like the good shepherd, God cares for us. Each one of us is special in His eyes.
Lesson #2: My shepherd forgives me
Bible story: The Prodigal Son
Message: Like the father in the story, God forgives our sins when we say we are truly sorry.
Other activity: Using a write and swipe magnetic board, I showed Hannah that when we do something wrong, our hearts become “dirty”. However, when we ask God for forgiveness, God erases our sin and we are “clean” again.
Lesson #3: My shepherd is always with me
Bible story: Daniel and the Lions
Message: God was there to protect Daniel from the lions. He is also here to protect us.
Other activity: To have Hannah pretend she is a lion and prowl around the house. Whenever I say, “God shut the mouths of the lions”, Hannah would close her mouth tightly.
Lesson #4: My shepherd loves me forever
Bible story: Zacchaeus
Message: God loves each one of us; even the unlovely of society.
Other activity: Singing along to the Zacchaeus song.
I hope these simple activities will also help your little one enjoy learning and memorizing Psalm 23. Have fun!
