Righteousness

Explore how our conscience is like a smoke detector, how sin is like a fire, and what a game of Tug of War can teach us about winning our “tug of war” with temptation!

Build kid-captivating lessons from loads of ideas that help kids:

  • desire to please and obey God
  • listen to their conscience
  • enlist the Holy Spirit to help them resist temptation
  • make God-honouring choices.

This lesson also helps kids deal with uncontrolled anger, impulsiveness and giving in to peer pressure.
