Encourage children to think of something they feel they do well or enjoy doing, such as playing a musical instrument, playing a sport, and so forth. Warn them not to tell anyone what they have in mind. Let kids take turns acting out the thing they do well, allowing the other children to guess. Offer helpful suggestions to actors.


Before class, hide coins in different places around the room. Allow kids to hunt for the hidden coins.

If time allows, use the coins to play a game of “Hot or Cold.” Select a child to be the finder. Hide a coin somewhere in the room while the finder is blindfolded or steps outside the door with another leader. When the blindfold is removed or the finder steps back in the room, allow children to help the finder by shouting out “hot” or “cold” based on the finder’s proximity to the hidden coin. Continue until the finder discovers the coin.


Lead in to Lesson: Today, we are going to hear a parable about gifts/coins.

(Matt 25:14-30)

Suggested props: 15 coins for kids to count along during the story.

Jesus was teaching people about God and His kingdom. He told them parables, or stories, to help them understand.

One day, Jesus was talking about the last day, the day when Jesus will come back to earth. Jesus said that no one knows when that day will happen.

Then He told His listeners a parable about three servants. Jesus said,

“This is what that day will be like. A man was going on a journey. He called his servants to him and gave them each some money. He gave one servant five talents, another servant two talents, and another servant one talent. (Now, a talent was a very large amount of money.) Each man received what the master thought he was able to take care of. Then the man left and went on his journey.

“The first servant, who had five talents, invested the money right away. Soon, the five talents had earned five more. In the same way, the man who had two talents invested the money and earned two more talents. But the servant who had one talent did not invest his master’s money. Instead, he dug a hole in the ground and hid the money in the hole.

“After a long time, the master came home. He asked his servants what they had done with his money. The servant who had five talents showed the master that he had earned five more talents. ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’ the master said. ‘You did a good job looking over a few things, so I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share in my joy!’

“Then the second servant, who had two talents, showed the master that he had earned two more talents. “ ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’ the master said. ‘You did a good job looking over a few things, so I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share in my joy!’

“Then the third servant, who had one talent, brought the master his one talent. The servant said, ‘Master, I know you. You are a difficult man. I was afraid and went off and hid your talent in the ground. Here is the one talent you gave me.’

“The master was not happy. ‘You evil, lazy servant! If you know me so well, you should have invested your money with the bankers so that when I returned, I would get my money back with interest.’

“The master took the talent from the servant and gave it to the servant who had 10 talents. The master said, ‘Everyone who uses what they have will get even more, and they will have more than they need. But anyone who wastes what he has will have everything taken away. Throw out this useless servant.’ ”

The man going on a journey

Jesus knew that after He went to the cross, He would go back to heaven before returning for us one day.

But in His absence, and until His return, He leaves us with valuable treasures (talents). What is this treasure? It is God’s gift of grace — His righteousness and blessings because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross.

The servants

There are two other groups of people in this parable

The first and second servants:

When we believe in Jesus and exercise the gift of His finished work on the Cross, we are able to bless others because of all that Christ has blessed us with.

When we share God’s grace with others, we see it multiply and bear fruit in our lives — some five times, some ten times.

·         We live faithful, victorious and abundant lives in Christ (Our work/studies, families, ministries prosper)
·         Others are blessed by us
·         The Lord grants us more gifts to bless even more people
·         We share in Jesus’ joy

The last servant:

If we have God’s gift of grace but don’t do anything about it (bury in the ground), it is of no use to us.

·         We have wrong image of God — as a hard master who is ruthless and unfair, always waiting to punish us for our mistakes
·         We waste the gifts and talents He has blessed us with and lose out on more
·         We rely on our own strength, efforts and works to try to please God, and end up empty and frustrated


Know who God is have the right picture of Him. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus. He’s not a hard master out to get us. He wants to rejoice with us and call us “good and faithful”.

Know the treasure we have in Christ — don’t hide it away. Use it. Enjoy it. Share it with others. Bless others with it.

Jesus is coming back again those who do not receive Him as their Saviour and King will be left out of His kingdom. Let’s share with our friends the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ!

REMEMBER: We are Blessed to be a Blessing!



Get kids in smaller groups. Get them to share what are some of the gifts and talents God has blessed them with and how they can bless others with them.

(Luke 7:36-50)

Suggested props: a bottle of perfume

One day, a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to his house for dinner.

As Jesus was eating at the table, suddenly a woman came to him. This woman had a bad reputation in the town. The Bible describes her as someone who lived a sinful life.

This woman started crying at Jesus’ feet. Her tears streamed down and wet his feet, and she wiped the feet with her hair. She had a very expensive and precious alabaster jar of perfume — it was probably her most treasured possession. She poured the perfume on Jesus’ feet. (spray some perfume in the air or at feet so that the kids can smell it)

When Simon saw this happening, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is.”

As we know, Jesus knows our thoughts even when we don’t speak them out. Jesus decided to tell

Simon a story:

     Two people owed money to a moneylender.
     One owed 500 denarii, while the other owed 50 denarii. 
     (1 denarii = 1 day’s salary)
      None of them could pay their debt.
      The moneylender decided to forgive both their debts.
      Which of these two people will love the moneylender more?

Simon answered, “The one who had the bigger debt forgiven.”

Jesus said, “You have judged correctly.”

Then Jesus turned to the woman and said to Simon:


Did not give any water for Jesus to wash His feet
Wet feet with tears and wiped with hair

Did not give Jesus a kiss
Has not stopped kissing feet

Did not put oil on Jesus’ head
Poured perfume on His feet

Both Simon and the woman had sins — both had debts they could not pay.

But only the woman realised and understood that Jesus had forgiven her many sins. That’s why the woman’s response was so great! She had been forgiven much, so she loved much.

Whereas Simon the Pharisee was probably self-righteous and did not realise he also needed his sins to be forgiven. So as he thought he had not much to be forgiven, he also showed little love to Jesus.

Difference: Simon invited Jesus into his house, but the woman invited Jesus into her heart.

Jesus assured the woman: “Your sins are forgiven. Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.” The woman no longer had to go out as a “sinful” woman, but as one who knew she had been forgiven.


When we realise how much Jesus has done for us, we cannot help but to love Him in return.

That’s the amazing grace of God!

Let’s pray: Thank you Jesus that while we were still sinners, when we couldn’t pay our debts, when we were Your enemies, You loved us and forgave us. Thank you for Your amazing grace in our lives. Amen.



Get kids in smaller groups. Get them to share some of the sins they have done in their lives and what it means to them that Jesus has forgiven them all.

CRAFT: Perfume bottle

Prepare a bag with the following items (or pictures of items):

·        Bread
·        Egg
·        Candy
·        Rock
·        Toy snake
·        Toy scorpion

Tell the kids this is a gift bag. And 6 kids have a chance to draw a gift from it. Some will be good gifts; others will be yucky gifts.

Will our daddy and mummy give us good or yucky gifts? Good

Jesus will also always give us good gifts. He wants to give us good gifts. Thank you Jesus!


Kids are seated in a circle.

Kid A starts by asking a neighbor, Kid B: "Mr/Mrs. Mumble, can you give me some bread?" without showing their teeth.

Kid B responds by saying, "No (Kid A’s name), Don’t bother me. I’m already in bed." (Again, no showing teeth!)

Then Kid B asks the next person, Kid C, "Mr/Mrs. Mumble, can you give me some bread?"

This must go around the circle without any players showing their teeth while speaking.

Those who show teeth will be out or have to do a forfeit.

(Luke 11:5-13)

Today we are going to hear a parable of the friend who had to persuade his friend to get up and give him bread at midnight.

Jesus was praying and his disciples asked him to teach them how to pray. After he taught them how to pray (what is commonly referred to as “The Lord’s Prayer”), Jesus had something very important to say about prayer.

Jesus knew that what we thought of God was more important than the words that we use when we pray.

 Luke 11:5-8

Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend. You go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread. A friend of mine on a journey has come to stay with me. I have no food to give him.’ And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked. My children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ I tell you, that person will not get up. And he won’t give you bread just because he is your friend. But because you keep bothering him, he will surely get up. He will give you as much as you need.

Imagine the scene. It is midnight. All is dark and quiet. The man, his wife and their young children all asleep in bed and the doors of the house are locked.

Suddenly, there is a knocking at the door. The man opens his eyes, gets out of bed, walks to his window, looks down and sees his friend below his window. He tells his friend “Don’t bother me. The door is already locked. My children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.” He goes back to bed.

The friend doesn’t give up and continues knocking. The wife now wakes up and glares at the man, “You better give him what he needs, otherwise he will wake up our children”. The man finally gives his friend the bread he asks for.

(Suggest to start at 0.21 and end right after the parable)

This parable is often told to illustrate that if we are persistent, ie keep on praying and don’t give up, and God will answer our prayers. However, Jesus went on to say:

Luke 11:9-13

“So here is what I say to you. Ask, and it will be given to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. Everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find. And the door will be opened to the one who knocks.

“Fathers, suppose your son asks for a fish. Which of you will give him a snake instead? Or suppose he asks for an egg. Which of you will give him a scorpion? (The answer to both questions is “NO!”)Even though you are evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. How much more will your Father who is in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”


Who are we in the parable? Sometimes we may think that we are the friend outside the house knocking on the door to ask for bread. But Jesus says, “Even though you are evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. How much more will your Father who is in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Therefore, we are not the friend outside the house. We are the children who are in bed with the Father! Whatever we need, we can just tap him on the shoulder or tug his shirt sleeve and tell him what we need.

Jesus went on to say that even our human parents, who are not perfect, always want to give good gifts to us. So our loving, perfect Heavenly Father will surely give us good gifts.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above …” (James 1:17)

Like a little child who looks to his mother for food, drink, comfort, or to fulfill any of his needs, we can look to our Father to give us what we need. We know that God will surely give us what is best for us because he even gave Jesus to die for us on the cross.


We have a loving heavenly Father who is ever willing to help us. We can always ask him to help us and tell him what we need.



Luke 11:9 Ask, and it will be given to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you.


Get kids in smaller groups. Get them to share prayer points and pray knowing that we have a God who cares, listens and answers.


Let us praise and thank God because he is great and so good to us.

 Say to the Lord I love you (Lyrics on the slides)

My God is so big
