Hard-Won Humility

Aim: To present the desirable beauty of godly humility (and the unpleasantness of pride) to the children

Core Competency: Humility

Objectives: The children will

  • Clearly understand Godís calling to be humble
  • Desire to credit God for their accomplishments
  • Choose to focus on others rather than themselves

Key Verse: May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. ( Gal 6:14a )

Story: "Something to Boast About " ( 2 Cor 11:16-30; 12:7-10 )

Materials Required:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape, transparent
  • String
  • Fan, box (optional)

Eye on Science:

Show the "proud" (tailless) kite, and point out that itís focus is on itself Ė nothing to drag it down. Holding its string, run across the room (or let it flutter in the air conditioning exhaust or output of a box fan). It should flutter wildly. Point out that a lack of humility leads us to be self-centered and useless to God.

Show the "humble" (tailed) kite, and point out that it is focused on others. You would think the tail would drag it down, like humility would make you seem unimportant and ignored. Holding the string, run across the room (or let it flutter in the air conditioning exhaust or output of a box fan); it should appear much more stable. The tail provides stability to the kite. On a real kite, it is this stability that allows the wind to lift the kite into the air; in a Christian, it is our humility that allows God to lift us close to Him and put us into useful positions serving His kingdom.
