“Level 2 Lesson Plan: You Never Lose by Giving” is a 20- to 30-minute lesson plan that highlights the following lesson objective: “Gain a deeper understanding of what it means to give.” (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Generosity-2a)
Read “The Giving and Receiving Principle.”
Discuss the spiritual principle that as we give, the Lord gives back to us. Maybe not in the ways that we expect, but He does bless our acts of giving. Ask the children to recount a time when they gave something away, whether a material item, or a gift of time, love, hugs, etc. Discuss together the blessings the Lord gave them in return.
Read “Choose Things of Value: Time for ‘Me’ or ‘We’?”
Discuss how it’s not what we give that matters, but the position of our heart.
Read “That’s My Cow in There!”
Talk about how when you do something kind for others, you shouldn't do it solely for a reward. Real generosity and giving is an act of love, and doesn’t expect anything in return.
Just for fun: Take the quiz “Bible Who, What, Why, and Where on Giving.”
Read the verses in “Crazily Cool Card Set: Giving.” Print out your children’s favorite verse from this set, for them to place somewhere they like and commit that verse to memory.
