Physical and Spiritual Blessings
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17
This activity is based on the above passage and was used while studying about Hosea, one of God’s prophets in The New Living Bible Lessons series lesson 9. God has always told His people that if they obeyed Him, He would bless them. Those of us who obey Him today receive physical blessings as well as spiritual blessings. It can be difficult for the young elementary student to understand the difference in spiritual and physical blessings.
This is a two-flap booklet. It’s easy to make and the instructions are on the PDF.
During class, after discussing the verse and what physical and spiritual blessings are, the student can either draw pictures of some of these blessings or list them.
The student who did the activity pictured chose to list some of the blessings. Alternately, you could provide pictures representing these blessings.
Students can take their booklet home at the end of class, or, if you are making the project folder, glue it in place.
