The child will be able to take a stand for God.
Bible Story Reference: Esther 2:19-3:15
Matthew 4:10b (NIV)
“For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”
Play a simple game of Simon Says. Have some fun and do some variations.
❖ Ask the child if it was easy to do what was being said or “commanded.” It is often easy to do what everyone else is doing and not pay attention to the command.
❖ Ask the child if they think it would be easy or hard to not do what everyone else was doing.
❖ Today, a Jewish man, Mordecai, took a stand for what was right. The pressure to compromise was strong, yet he stood tall, obeying the law of his God.
Lead the children in a prayer of commitment to take a stand for the Lord—to obey God rather than man. If there are any children who have not yet responded to the Gospel, give them opportunity.
This is to remind us of the King’s signet ring that Haman used to make a decree against Esther’s people.
