When Does God Eat Dinner?

Group Books

Simple Supplies: A Bible, a lunch box, a whole apple, and apple slices

What are some things we need to stay alive? Let children respond. What are some of your favorite foods? Do you think God has a favorite food? What would he like for breakfast? Hold up a lunch box. What might God take in his lunch box? What do you think he eats for dinner? Let children respond to each question. I wonder if God really does eat dinner?

Hold up the apple, and take a bite of it. This juicy apple is one of the things God has provided. It's sweet and crunchy-a wonderful gift from God. We can eat it as it is, or we can use it to make other foods. What else can we make with apples? Let children respond. Their answers may include such things as applesauce, pie, jelly, and salad.

Do you think God likes to eat apples? We don't really know, do we? God doesn't need food, water, or shelter because he is Spirit. But God knows that we need things like food, shelter, water, and love. And he has made us a promise. Open your Bible to Philippians 4:19. Philippians 4:19 says, "My God will use his wonderful riches in Christ Jesus to give you everything you need."

Next time you eat an apple, I hope it will remind you to thank God for all he's given you. Let's close in prayer.

Dear God, we thank you today for all the wonderful gifts you've given us, such as food, shelter, our families, and each other. Most of all, we thank you for you. Help us to remember to thank you each day for the many blessings you've given us. In Jesus' name, amen.

Distribute the apple slices. Take an apple slice before you leave, and remember as you eat it that God provides all we need.
