Welcome back to the next part of our Where Is series. Last week, we focused on the nose and shared Genesis 2:7 which said, “Then the Lord God took dust from the ground and made a man. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nose, and the man became a living thing.” This reminds us that life comes from God. This week, we are sharing a new focus and scripture. Are you ready? Let’s get started.
God even knows how many hairs are on your head. Matthew 10:30 ERV
Children need to know that they are important to God. They are so important that God knows the smallest detail about them, like how many hairs are on their head.
How to Execute the Lesson
You (to child): Where is your hair? Can you point to it?
*Child points (If they cannot point, you point or help them feel it.)
You: There it is! Did you know that you are so important to God that He knows the smallest detail about you, like the number of hairs that are on your head? Matthew 10:30 tells us this. It says, “God even knows how many hairs are on your head.” Isn’t that wonderful to know that God cares and loves you that much to think about that small detail? You are special to Him.
Throughout the week, continuously ask your child to point out the hair on their head, other people’s hair, and pictures of hair, followed by the scripture and explanation. By the end of the week, we want their ears to pique because they will know that that scripture coordinates with a certain part of the body, and if they are able, they will start saying the scripture with you. As a bonus, enjoy the coloring sheet from CCE Contributor and Illustrator Jack Foster. In the picture, we see a bird pulling at a strand of a little boy’s hair. God knows the number on that hair too.
