If you are new to my blog, please go HERE to catch up on what I’m providing through “DOODLE DEVOTIONS”
This week we are studying Abraham and Sarah.
Below is a teaching video, brought to you by Crossroads Community Church Kids Club!
Remind your kids that God made a promise to Abraham and God’s promises are good. God is always faithful and wants us to be faithful as well.
God promised that a great nation would come from Abraham. He promised that Abraham’s name would be great among the Earth, and that all people would be blessed through him. God always keeps His promises. God wants us to keep our promises too.
Ask your Kids…
What kind of promises can you make that you can keep? Allow children to respond.
We can promise to be nice to our brother or sister, share with our friends or help our parents with something around the house. Encourage your kids to think of a promise they can make. Let them know, that keeping a promise is very hard, and they will need God’s power to follow through. We can stop and talk to God anytime, and He will help us!
Give them a piece of paper and ask them to draw a picture of the promise they have made.
Write I promise to …….. on the top of the page.
Hang the picture somewhere your child will see it daily, and explain that you want them to look at the promise each day, and remember to ask God to help them KEEP their promise:) Tell them, “God keeps His promises, and he wants you to keep your promise too.”

Today’s Doodle Devotion, is just a “slice” of Abraham’s story! I pray that as you create opportunities to teach your children about God’s faithfulness, they will learn that He is trustworthy. The Story of Abraham can help them understand that good things take time, but if we know our God is faithful to His Word, we can trust that the wait is always worth it!
