Simple Activity @ Home

Grab two bags, one a plain brown one and the other a fancy gift bag. In the plain brown one, place your child’s favorite snack food. In the gift bag, place your child’s least favorite food. During snack time, let your child choose and open each bag. While eating the snack, talk to your child about how it only mattered what was on the inside of the bag, not how it looked on the outside. Read the bible story of how God chooses David to be king and how God looked at what was in David’s heart not what was on the outside. Here’s some questions to ask afterwards:

  • What do you think is important to God?
  • Why are you special to God?
  • Do you pay attention to the appearance of others or to their heart?
  • I wonder what it looks like to pay attention to the heart.
