Sometimes we have to let go of one thing in order to embrace another…when it comes to knowing Jesus, nothing is more awesome and wonderful than He is. It is well worth giving up other things in order to follow Him. We must sometimes set aside what we think is important, in order to get something much better. When we follow Jesus, we seek after a valuable treasure! He makes us co-workers in His kingdom and offers the opportunity to call and help others, too.

 Just as the Lord called His disciples, He calls us to know, follow, and learn from Him. Sometimes following Christ means letting go of things that we think we want. For the original disciples, it meant giving up their jobs to follow wholeheartedly. But Jesus gave up everything to come to Earth and die for us! His sacrifice is far greater, and our gain from knowing Him is more than anything we can imagine.

Bible Passage: Matthew 4:12-23

Target Audience: Kindergarten-6th grade. Children age 6-12 years old.

Teaching Materials Needed: Construction paper, markers, stickers, scissors, tape/glue, string, popsicle sticks, yarn/string, cotton balls, paper plates, fishing equipment, decorations (all optional, depending which activities you choose to use).

            Accessible Object Lesson

            I taught this lesson last week. I had a very small group (only 3 kids) from the ages of 3-9, but I felt like they were all engaged and got something out of the class. I found the object lesson especially effective. Some aspects of the lesson were a little too long and wordy for my group, but I was able to summarize or omit aspects in order to keep the kids engaged. Thanks so much!

            HI I get your free Sunday school lessons for the underprivilage kids at our church

            I am thankful for this, as I work full time and trying to get material together for 3 age groups takes a lot of time, I have had to modify the lessons somewhat as not all our kids can get to school, so a lot are uneducated and cant read and write. as we work in an underpriviage area, the avaliabilty of resources is limited, so that also makes it difficult for us

            We are unable to afford the pay lessons, but thanks for the free ones

            My Sunday School loved this lesson, they really liked becoming fish and fishermen. This lesson tied in perfectly with our childrens bible story, and their crafts were amazing!
