Scripture: Titus 1:2

- adult volunteer
Object Lesson for Elementary Kids
- Have you ever made a promise?
- Why is it important to keep promises?
With the volunteer, take opposite ends of the rope.
Say: I promise I won’t let go. Will you promise? Let’s lean back and hold on.
- What if I break my promise?
- What would you think of me if I let go right now?
- Do you want to try this?
Have children promise to hold on as they lean back.
Say: If you had to hold this rope forever, you’d want someone who’d be able to keep his or her promise. We can trust that God always keeps his promises. Let’s read a verse from the Bible to find out why we can trust God.
Paraphrase Titus 1:2.
- What does it mean that God does not lie?
- How do you feel knowing that we can trust God to keep his promises?
Say: God keeps all his promises—including his promise to be our friend forever! God will never let go of us. Let’s thank God for keeping all his promises.
Close with a short prayer.
For Extra Impact
- Ask: What does it mean to keep a promise? What happens when you don’t keep a promise?
- Ask: Why do you think God always keeps his promises to us? Why should we keep our promises to others?
- Give each child a small piece of rope as a reminder that God always keeps his promises.
