Most curriculums don't contain offering messages for children, so I'm including some on this blog. It's very important to teach children the power behind their giving, and that it's a system set up by God so each person can reap a future harvest. Teaching this to children will prevent them from becoming adults who have limited themselves from experiencing all the blessing God has provided for them by being fearful in the area of giving. Instead, they will understand that giving is designed by God to bless them on the earth.
Giving is a seed that produces a double harvest: seed for more sowing (so we can continue to be a blessing to others), and bread for food (so our own needs can be met). Giving honors God. It helps keep our hearts on Him. And giving is just plain fun! I hope you enjoy all the skits and object lessons that I put on this blog.
Seed Time Game Show, Part 1
Voice: Welcome to the Sow Your Seed Gameshow with your favorite hostesses and mine, Bobby Bling and Chloe Starr!
(Enter to cheering audience and game show music.)
Bobby: Thank you! Thank you! They love me. Thank you!
Chloe: They’re cheering for me too, Bobby.
Bobby: (Not phased by this info and still with a million dollar smile.) Who cares. Thank you! Thank you! On with the show.
Chloe: (Big sigh) Boys and girls, we want to welcome you to the first ever Sow Your Seed Game Show.
Bobby: The show where we sow!
Chloe: Clever, Bobby. Anyway, we’re going to ask some questions, and you’re going to answer them. If you’re right, you win Kid Cash!
Bobby: Cool! Let’s play!
Chloe: Remember kids, you have to raise your hand to answer so you don’t get disqualified. Here’s the first question: If you sow a seed, what do you get? Your choices are A) nothing, B) a back ache, or C) a harvest? (Response from kids) And the correct answer is, C. You get a harvest when you sow seed.
Bobby: My turn. My question is, if you sow a carrot seed, what kind of harvest will you get? A) watermelons, B) carrots, or C) donuts. (Response from kids) Right! B) Carrots is the correct answer. You’re going to get the same thing you planted every time, so watch out for the seed you sow!
Chloe: Now for the final question. When does seed time actually work? A) as long as the earth remains, B) sometimes, or C) just on Tuesdays. (Response from kids) Correct! The answer is A. God promises that as long as the earth is here, we will have seed time!
Bobby: These kids are sharp!
Chloe: That’s all we have time for today, kids. Remember to keep on sowing.
Bobby: And keep on sowing.
Chloe: I already said that.
Bobby: (Million dollar smile for the cheering crowds as Chloe pulls her off stage.) Whatever! Bye! Thank you! Thank you! They love me! Bye!
