Life isn’t easy. This is no surprise to most of us, but we sometimes hope to shelter kids from the challenges that surround us. It’s important to share with children that, although this world has trials, God is with us through them and helps us with them. This lesson is a reminder that we can’t argue with God’s plan. We don’t always understand His will and His ways, and things might not go as we’d hope. However, everything happens for a reason, and we can trust that God has our best in mind in the end, and He gives us strength for the journey. 

 We don’t always want to hear about denying ourselves and suffering for the sake of Christ. After all, doesn’t God love us? Shouldn’t a Christian life be full of blessing? This passage can be a hard one to swallow, but it’s important to recall that the Lord is with us through all that happens. In fact, Jesus suffered most of all, giving His own life for us. Because of that suffering, we know He walks with us through hard things and understands them. Jesus paid the ultimate price and fulfilled God’s plan for salvation. We can trust that God’s plan for our lives will come to great things in the end, even if we walk through challenges. 

"A Challenge Worth Taking - Mark 8:27-38 is a Christian Bible study lesson for children that aims to help them understand that God has a plan for their lives, even when things are tough. The lesson discusses the importance of following Jesus and trusting in His promises, even when we don't understand everything that's happening. It also encourages kids to be willing to sacrifice their own interests for the sake of following Jesus. The lesson includes a variety of activities that help kids engage with the material and apply it to their own lives.

Passage: Mark 8:27-38
