Today’s bible hero is Jesus because he shows us the gift of FORESIGHT
Essential Teachers notes:
This may seem like a deep tenant of theology to teach kids and seem overly sombre for their innocence, but it’s so central it shouldn’t be skimmed. Jesus was more than powerful enough that he didn’t need to allow himself to be captured, powerful enough that he could have stopped the crucifixion at any point, he went willingly. He went because there was a bigger story happening. He loved his disciples enough to prepare them.

| Jesus knew he would die, He walked in the shadow of the cross willingly. This little 3d image is really simple to make and quite striking. If you are in a rush you can skip the Hands section and it still looks great!

| We all dance differently, and by the reactions in this story David’s dancing style wasn’t up to much. This dancing David craft has him jiggle and wobble on the end of your finger. I can honestly say this craft has captured my home, it’s sat on the coffee table all week and been much played with!

David danced, and Dancing is the key element to most of the game suggestions here, though there is also a game for older kids about moving the Ark.
Relocation – In this challenge, the kids must transport a small box from one side of the room to the other without touching it or it touching the floor. If working in teams, give each team some prep time.
Link: David needed to move the ark correctly. Read verses 3 and 6 to find out what happened when it was wrongly transported.
