Peace for a Peso

Aim: Seek peace through prayer, Bible study, and obedience to God

Core Competency: Peace

Objectives: The children will

  • Pray endlessly
  • Study the Bible daily
  • Obey God in all things

Key Verse: The peace of God that passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ( Philippians 4:7 )

Story: " " ( )

Materials Required:

  • Bottle, 2 liter
  • Marble
  • Business card
  • Peso (any country)
  • Pennies, about a dozen

Eye on Science:

Advance Preparation: Empty, rinse and dry the soda bottle, then replace the cap. Practice the experiments until you are comfortable with them. If you can't find a real Peso, simply print a photo of one from the Internet. Ensure that the result is roughly the size of a dollar bill.

In Class: Tell the children about the real couple who desperately wanted peace. They studied each country diligently, considering recent history, whether terrorists were common, the crime rate, etc. Finally, they selected a small group of British islands off the coast of Argentina as the most peaceful place on earth, and moved there in January 1982.

Unfortunately, two months later, Argentina invaded those islands, known as the Falklands, initiating a bitter war with Britain that lasted until June 20. Many men were killed in the fighting, until Argentina was forced to return the islands.

And the couple? I don't know what happened to them, but I suspect they learned a critical lesson that we should learn as well: Peace is not a place but an experience.

(Hold up Peso note.) This is a peso, the national currency of Mexico (or whatever nation you chose). The couple thought they could buy peace with money like this. They were half right! Peace doesn't come from the peso (shake bill), but from PESO. Let's turn to Philippians 4:6-9 and I'll explain.

  • Pray Endlessly: Philippians 4:6 tells us that we should tell God what we need. This is what is meant by : Pray without ceasing. As you go through your day, do you talk to God about the big and the little things that you see, do and think? Do you thank Him for what He has done for you? That's the P and the E - Pray Endlessly!
  • Study: Philippians 4:8 tells us that our minds must stay centered on good things. We should focus on what is true, honest, right, pure, lovely, virtuous and worthy of praise. Where do you find things like that? The Bible, of course!
  • Obey:
