Prodigal Son Quotes (19 quotes)
Prodigal Son (Luke 15:1-3; 11-32) Children’s Sermon
Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. Luke NIV.
Will God stop loving me when I make bad choices? Our Father God runs after his lost children and welcomes their repentance with rewards not punishment. It is helpful to use the prodigal son story to discuss how God gives us great things even though we have messed up and deserve bad things. Most kids are familiar with rewards and punishments. It seems strange to be rewarded even though we mess up, but that is what the good news of the Gospel is all about! When Jesus took our bad things on Himself, it allowed God to take the punishment away from us and let us have Heaven instead. Message: Note: All elements are open to adjustment.
