Mar. 24 & 25: Give Your Best to God

This Weekend in MC Park, in Sunday School and Elementary Worship, your child will learn the story of the Widow’s Mite.

Jesus Notices a Widow’s Giving

You can review the story in
Mark 12:41-44. A great memory verse for your family this week is 2 Corinthians 9:7b – “God loves a cheerful giver”

Questions for review with your child:

1.    How can you tell when you’re giving your best effort?
2.    If you could give Jesus any gift, what would it be?
3.    Why do we say the poor woman gave her best to God when she gave only a tiny bit?
4.    How can giving to others help us give our best to God?
5.    Does God care what our gifts to him look like?
6.    What’s one thing you could offer God that would be your best?
7.    What gifts that don’t cost any money can you give?
8.    How do you think Jesus feels when we give our best to him?
9.    What is one action that shows you’re giving your best to God?
10. How can you tell if someone is not giving his or her best?
