Work for the Lord Sunday School Lesson

The Israelites Build the Tabernacle - The Israelites used their talents and wealth to build a temple for God. God gives everyone special abilities and wants us to use our talents to work for him. God wants us to work hard at whatever we are doing, not for the praise of men, but of the Lord. The following Crafts and Activities come from the Sunday School Lesson, "Work for the Lord" on The Resource Room


Talk About Work

Ask your children what jobs their parents have. Ask them what they would like to do when they grow up.

Play "Important Jobs" Charades Game

Place your children into teams of twos and give each child a piece of paper with a description of the work being performed. Let the teams take turns acting out the scene and have the other children guess what they are doing. Remind your children that they can't say anything while they are acting. (If you have very young children, have older children or adults act out the scenarios and let the children guess what they are doing.)

Note: My first grade class did an excellent job on acting out the jobs and guessing what they were. I gave them a few ideas of what they could do before they started.

1.Teacher teaching a student.

2.Doctor examining a patient.

3.Window washers.

4.Taxi car driver taking someone some place.

5.Office workers answering phones and typing.
