Children’s Sermon on Lamentations 3:22

Love that Never Runs Out

Objective: To illustrate to children that God’s love is infinite.

Scripture: Lamentations 3:22 “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

Materials: This object lesson will use a bag or bowl with rice in it.

Story Outline:

(As the kids are coming up to the front, have the bag or bowl of rice on your lap. You could stir it with your hand, or pick up handfuls and drop them back into the bowl.)

Hello, boys and girls! I have something mysterious up here on my lap. Can you see it?

Come closer. It’s a bowl of rice!

What?!? You don’t think rice is mysterious? Well just wait. I want to show you something.

I am going to give each of you one grain of rice. Here we go.

One for you… and one for you… one for you… There! Does everyone have one?

Now, look at my bowl. Does it look like I have less rice than I did when I started? Not really! My bowl is still full! Let’s do another round. I’m going to give each of you another grain of rice.

Here we go… one for you… and you… etc. Okay! Now you all have two grains of rice. Now, look at my bowl again. Is it empty? Am I all out of rice? No! It still looks full!

Now, isn’t that mysterious?

You know what’s even more amazing? God’s love is kind of like this bowl of rice. He can love you, me, and everyone else in the entire world and his bowl of love will still be full.

No matter how much love God gives, he will still have more. His love never runs out!

The Bible tells us that the love of God never ceases! It never ever comes to an end! And He also tells us that whenever we need love to give to others, all we need to do is ask, and he will fill us up with His love, so we can give it away. That way, we will never run out of love, either!

Isn’t that just amazing?

God uses us to spread his love around, and bring it to everyone, all around the world. We actually get to be a part of God’s great love!

Let’s pray to God, praising Him for his love that never runs out.

Dear Lord, we love you, and we know that you love us. And just like this bowl of rice is still full, we know that your love is so great, that it never runs out, no matter how much you give away. Thank you for your love, and please give us love so that we can be kind and loving towards others. Amen.
