Online Sunday School Lessons - Wisdom is Proved Right by Her Actions

Another great addition to your online Sunday School lessons! Use this lesson to teach kids about looking at what people do, not how they appear.

Needed: Bibles, pictures of people (included at end of lesson)

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

Show students pictures of various types of people. Make sure you’re showing a variety of types of people (men, women, long hair, short hair, different races, different cultures, different countries, different styles of dress, including “Goth”).  Show each picture to your students and ask, Is this person a good person or a bad person?

(Have a student read Matthew 11:18-19, or read it yourself.)

Some people thought that John was a bad person because he dressed in rags and ate bugs and lived in the desert and didn’t like to eat nice food with people. Jesus did like to eat and drink with people, but some people still thought He was a bad person.

But Jesus says that wisdom is proved right by her actions. That means you can’t decide if a person is good or bad just by looking at how they dress or what hairstyle they have or what color they are or where they’re from or anything like that. You have to decide if they’re a good person or not by what they do. Are they doing the right things that God wants them to do, or are they doing the wrong things that God doesn’t’ want them to do?

What people do is the only thing that matters to God, and if we believe in God, then that should be the only thing that matters to us too.
