Sunday School Lessons – Make Them Interesting!

March 22, 2012 Posted by Sons 2010

Because most children have a relatively short attention span it is vital that you occupy as much of that time as possible profitably. This can be achieved by making your Sunday school lessons interesting and short. Proper preparation beforehand should ensure that you have no meaningless, time-wasting material there which is not relevant to the lesson that you have in mind. Focus on the main point that you wish to get across to the children: is it the seriousness of sin; the importance of salvation; the brevity of life; the reality of eternity? Make that the issue of importance and concentrate on riveting that thought on the minds of the children. You will not be able to cover every aspect of the gospel in fifteen minutes so concentrate on the essential and dump the extraneous. Maintain eye contact with the children and use language they all understand. Do not speak above their heads as I heard one speaker do on an occasion when he said that ‘transgression’ was “a violation of God’s principles”.
