Abraham Sunday School Lesson for Kids - God Leads Abram to a New Country

Use this Abraham Sunday School lesson for kids to teach kids about God leading Abraham to Canaan.

Lesson: (Note: Always allow students enough time to think about and to give their answers to the questions before clarifying the teaching.)

Ask students, Can any of you think of a hard thing that God might ask you to do? Use your imaginations.

What if God told you to leave your family and all your friends and go live in another country? Would you do it? How would you feel about it?

Well, God told the person in our Bible story today to do exactly that.

Summarize Genesis 12, asking questions as you go.

God said to Abram, “Leave your country and your people and your father’s family and go to the land I will show you.”

Do you think Abram was scared to go to a new place?

Do you think he was sad to have to leave his family?

Do you think maybe he was a little bit excited, too, to see the place where God was taking him?

God said, “I will bless you and I will be with you and will make you into a great nation.”

What is God promising to do for Abram? To bless him, to reward him.

Do you think God can bless and reward us if we listen to Him and do what He tells us? Yes.

So Abram left, as God had told him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left his own country and he took his wife, Sarai, his nephew, Lot, and everything that they had and moved to the country of Canaan.

When they arrived in Canaan, God promised Abram, “I will give this whole country to your children and their children forever.” So Abram built an altar there and made sacrifices to God on it to thank God for everything God had done for him.

Do you think it’s important to thank God when He does something good for us? Yes.

What are some ways that we can thank God? We can thank Him by praying to Him, we can do something special for God, we can give God an extra offering out of the money that we get, etc.
