Which would you choose: a fun food game or a crazy science experiment? Don’t worry - you’ll get to both at kids’ church today so you won’t have to choose! But we’re going to discover why being able to choose is so important - when God gave us the gift of free will: to choose to follow Him or to choose not to. God lets us choose because He loves us. God doesn’t force us to follow Him - because then that wouldn’t be real love. Instead it’s because we know God truly loves us unconditionally that we want to follow Him! And in the times when we make a wrong choice, He forgives us and makes our hearts clean. In the times when we want to make a better choice, He helps us through. But no matter what choice we make, He always loves us. There’s no amount of good choices that can make you earn His love. There’s no amount of bad choices that could make you lose it. You have God’s love simply because you exist. Wow, God!
Talk About: Why is it important that God lets us make choices? Why is that a sign of His love?
