Share God’s Love – Object Lesson

I love doing object lessons with the kids. They are perfect tools to gain their attention, help spark their curiosity, and help them retain the information.

I saw this object lesson on Facebook around Valentine’s Day, and thought that it’d be perfect for Easter!

First Draw a big heart with a washable marker, with a few empty hearts right above it on a paper towel.

[Our hearts are empty before we accept God’s love for us. John 3:16. God loved us so much that he sent his son Jesus to die for us. His love doesn’t depend on what we do, he loves us unconditionally – no matter what! He doesn’t want our hearts to stay empty without Him! When we believe to trust God’s love for us through Jesus dying on the cross, He fills our hearts with his love through the Holy Spirit! He lives in us and with us!]

Have the children dip the paper towel in water.

[God wants us to share his love with others – and we have help through the Holy Spirit. As we fill our hearts with his love every day we will overflow and spread it to others!]

Watch as the color bleeds into the empty hearts.

[Prayer: Ask God to fill your lives every day with his love, so that it will overflow to others!]
