The Den of Lions | Daniel 6

 

Lesson Goal:
To teach children that God is our savior. He saved Daniel from the lions and, through Jesus,
He saves us from sin.

 

Opening Prayer:
Dear God, thank You for saving Daniel from the lions and thank You for sending Jesus to save us from our sin. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

 

Bible Memory Verse:

James 1:22 (NLT)

22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.

Verse Memory Tips: (have your preschooler repeat the verse with you using the following hand/body motions:)

● “My God” - Point to the sky.
● “Sent his angel” - Hold arms out and flap them like wings.
● “To shut” - Start with your hands apart and clasp them together.
● “The lions’ mouth” - Say this with your hands out like claws and then point to your mouth.
● “What it says” - Touch your mouth and then move your hands outward.
