Hi Parents!

We're excited for R/Kids Online this week! Our ministry is all about partnering with families in the mission of our church, to make disciples of all nations. We think this incredible call to families starts in the home. Our hope is that this content will equip parents to take an active part in discipling your kids through singing & learning, considering & applying, and playing together. 

Ananias and Sapphira wanted to look generous, but they were greedy. The Holy Spirit changes our hearts to want to share with those in need because Jesus generously gave all He had so we can share in His riches and have forgiveness and eternal life.

Family Worship: "More than Conquerors" by Seeds Family Worship

Our Kids Video Lessons for this week is "Ananias and Sapphira"

Memory Verse through March 14th
"We, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another."
Romans 12:5

1. What does it mean to fear God? 

Prompt your kids to recall that when people heard about what happened to Ananias and Sapphira, they were filled with fear. Fearing God does not mean being afraid of Him; it means respecting Him and showing Him honor because of how great He is.  (Read Ex. 20:20.)

2. Have you ever done a good thing for a bad reason? Do you think our motives matter to God? Why?

Invite your kids to share their experiences. Emphasize that why we do things is just as important as what we do. God is not honored when we do what is right just to impress others or earn their approval. God is pleased when we do what is right—as long as we are motivated by our love for Him.  (Read Gal. 1:10.)

3. Why can we joyfully give to God? 

Lead your kids to recognize that everything we have is a gift from God. Jesus gave up everything to come to earth and save us from our sins. Jesus even gave up His own life, dying on the cross in our place. When we know and love Jesus, we can serve Him as the Lord of our life and offer Him everything we have.

1) A printable activity & coloring sheet 2) Decorate offering envelopes

Encourage kids to decorate mailing envelopes to use as offering envelopes. Consider inviting kids to plan a special offering to give to missions or the general church fund over the next few weeks. If kids do not have money to give, encourage them to write on an index card a way they could serve the church with their time or talents.  Kids may deliver the special offering in the envelopes they decorated.

SAY • Ananias and Sapphira lied about their gift to the church. Ananias and Sapphira wanted to look generous, but they were greedy.

We can give joyfully to God because everything we have is a gift from God. When the early believers shared everything they had, they showed that they loved God and trusted Him to take care of their needs. Do you trust God like that? What might be keeping you from trusting Him in that way?

The Holy Spirit changes our hearts to want to share with those in need because Jesus generously gave all He had so we can share in His riches and have forgiveness and eternal life.
