Josh and the Big Wall!
VeggieTales DVD

Josh and the Big Wall teaches children a biblical perspective on obedience. Oh, boy! After forty years of wandering in the desert, the children of Israel finally get to go to the Promised Land! Only one little thing they've overlooked, though...Jericho!  Joshua has God's directions, but they sound kind of...well, weird. In the end, they have to decide whether it's better to do things their way, or God's way!
This free Kid's Bible study on Ephesians 6:1-3 is the third lesson of your Christian Character Education course.

Just as with the other children's Bible study lessons in this series, I recommend that you and your children sit down and go through it together.  This obedience Bible lesson is a great opportunity to talk to your child about being obedient, and why you must discipline them when they don't follow  directions.

Learning to obey those in authority is becoming more and more of a lost art.   Don't let it be lost with your kids!

Helpful Hint:

Remember, kids learn by repetion.  So, it's very important to reinforce what they will learn in this obedience Bible study over time.  This is a way for you to help them "renew their minds" to be in line with God's Word.

A fun way to build upon what you'll teach them here would be to introduce a fun Christian cartoon or movie about the importance of obedience.  That way they are learning and having fun at the same time.  

I have to admit, even as an adult, I LOVE the Chrub Wings Christian cartoon series.  They are fun, and truly simplify things in ways that kids can understand.  Their cartoon, "Out of Bounds" will reinforce the importance of boundaries, and why we can't just do what we want when we want.  It's a fun way to help you kids understand that the boundaries you set for them are really for their own good.

Kids Bible Study Ephesians 6:1-3

Obeying Your Parents Makes God Happy!

Scripture Reading Time!

Ephesians 6:1 (NLT)

Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do.

Do you want to have a good life here on Earth?

God promises that, if you do what your parents ask you to, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth” (Ephesians 6:3 NLT).  And we know, when God promises us something, it is always true.

God has given us parents to watch over us while we are young because we are still learning about life.  He blesses our parents with wisdom, and He helps them to know what is  best for us.  When we listen to our parents and obey them, we are really obeying God.   But, when we do not listen to our parents, we are disobeying God.  That is why our parents punish us when we disobey.

Ways to Obey Our Parents:

Let’s Talk About It!

  1. What does Ephesians 6:1 say is the right thing to do?
  2. When we disobey our parents, who are we really disobeying?
  3. Name one of the ways that we can obey our parents?
