TODAY’S BIBLE LESSON
“Wise and Foolish Builders” – Matthew 7:24-29
Welcome to Day 5 of Revival Kids VBS Re-Imagined! Today, our VBS hosts will give your construction workers the Blueprint for the day, which includes playing some fun games. They will watch Day 5 of our animated Concrete and Cranes video, and then our Worship Rally Kids will get everyone up and moving and ready for the day.
If you have a Bible, turn to Matthew 7:24-29 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. In today’s Bible story, Jesus told a parable about two builders. He said that everyone who heard His words and acted on them would be like the wise man who built his house on the rock. The house had a strong foundation and would stand against the wind and the rain. However, those who did not listen would be like the foolish builder who built his house on the sand. Once the wind and rains came, the house collapsed. If people listen and obey Jesus, they will have a strong foundation for whatever happens in their lives.
Today’s activity is GAMES. Ask your child to recall today’s Bible story. Remind them that some builders made wise choices, while others made foolish choices. Today they will play a game called “Build Wise High-Rise.” If you want to play the game indoors, give your child a set of inside supplies. If you’re going to play the game outside, give your child a set of outside supplies. Challenge them to make the highest structure before you call time. Play the Games portion of the online video to watch Miss Tawn play this game.
Take out your Activity Book and turn to page 13, “Building Inspection.” Ask your child to identify the wise items to use to build, and things that wouldn’t be helpful. Say: “Choosing to use the right materials to build a house is important, just like choosing to listen and obey God is important.” Congratulate your child on doing an excellent job of building a foundation of knowledge about Jesus and His love for them this week.
