Luke 9:42

The Twelve are sent out—Jesus feeds the five thousand—Peter testifies of Christ—Jesus foretells His death and resurrection—He is transfigured on the mount—He heals and teaches.

1 Then he called his atwelve disciples together, and gave them power and bauthority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

2 And he sent them to apreach the kingdom of God, and to bheal the sick.

3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.

4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.

5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, ashake off the very bdust from your feet for a testimony against them.

6 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the agospel, and healing every where.

7 ¶ Now aHerod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;

8 And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.

9 And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.

10 ¶ And the apostles, when they were returned, told ahim all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a bdesert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.

13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.

14 For they were about afive thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.

15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.

16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.

17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

18 ¶ And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?

19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The aChrist of God.

21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to atell no man that thing;

22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be arejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

23 ¶ And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his across daily, and bfollow me.

24 aFor whosoever will save his life shall blose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and alose himself, or be cast away?

26 For whosoever shall be aashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the bSon of man be ashamed, cwhen he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.

27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of adeath, till they see the kingdom of God.

28 ¶ And it came to pass about an aeight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a bmountain to cpray.

29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was aaltered, and his raiment was white and bglistering.

30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

31 Who appeared in glory, aand spake of his bdecease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his aglory, and the two men that stood with him.

33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my abeloved Son: hear him.

36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

37 ¶ And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.

38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.

39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.

40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.

41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

43 ¶ And they were all amazed at the amighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,

44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be adelivered into the hands of men.

45 But they aunderstood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

46 ¶ Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be agreatest.

47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,

48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my aname receiveth me: and whosoever shall breceive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be cgreat.

49 ¶ And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is afor us.

51 ¶ And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the aSamaritans, to make ready for him.

53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

54 And when his disciples aJames and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command bfire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of aspirit ye are of.

56 For the aSon of man is not come to bdestroy men’s clives, but to dsave them. And they went to another village.

57 ¶ And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will afollow thee whithersoever thou goest.

58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

59 And he said unto another, aFollow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

61 And another also said, Lord, I will afollow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the aplough, and blooking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

luke 9:42

We as people tend to be competitive, and youngsters are no different. In fact, kids often find themselves in heated debates over who is first in line, whose turn it is, or who did the best job. In today’s story, we see that even disciples of Jesus argued over who was most important. We will see that God loves it when we approach Him humbly and do not beg for credit or glory. This lesson is especially relevant for children because we see Jesus emphasize an appreciation for children and admiration of their mindset. Our little ones might at times feel frustrated about not doing all that “big kids” do, but GOD still thinks they are special and precious!

Lesson focus: God thinks that little children are important, and He wants even big people to think with a humble and childlike attitude.

Passage: Mark 9:33-42; Luke 18:15-17

Target Audience: Kindergarten-6th Grade (adaptable older or younger)

Materials Needed: Paper in various types and colors; coloring materials; ribbons; stickers

Lesson Opening: Who’s first? Begin the lesson by sharing with the children that we will be creating pictures to see who makes the best art work…but there are a few twists. Allow students to figure out who is the oldest in the group, and allow them to select paper materials one at a time oldest to youngest. If students are too young to know age gaps by month, you may need to help or perhaps go by height rather than age. After students all pick out their papers, have them pick materials (crayons, markers, etc.), but this time with the youngest choosing first. Finally, tell students they have a time limit to create their pictures. The topic of drawing/art is open-ended, but they will only have a brief time to complete them. Draw names at random to stagger the start times of kids so they all start at different times. Give them several minutes to make their art work, and then take a look at the work. Explain that today we will be talking about our attitude and how God tells us we should think when we come to Him.

Bible Lesson:

Set a little background for the story. Explain that back when Jesus was alive, people did not always think kids were very important! A lot of times children were ignored or used for work until they were old enough to understand and really participate in things. Jesus did not agree. In fact, there are several spots in the Bible where we see Him being criticized for letting children come to Him. Read (or have kids read) Luke 18:15-17:

People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Even the disciples of Jesus wondered why He was spending so much time on little children. But Jesus explained that He welcomed and loved kids. He also said that people should “receive the kingdom of God like a little child…” What does that mean? Invite students to think about that as they look at another passage…in this one, Jesus and His disciples are walking down the road when He asks them a question:

 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.

35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”

36 He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”                                                           -Mark 9: 33-37

The disciples were arguing over who was best. They wanted to know if Jesus had a favorite or which one was most important. But they knew Jesus wouldn’t really like that argument (it probably wasn’t the first time they’d had it), so they didn’t say anything. Somehow, though, Jesus already knew. He told them that if they wanted to be great, they had to be humble. What does “humble” mean? Depending on age group, discuss or explain humility by sharing how important it is to not think too much of yourself. This is what Jesus meant earlier when He said that we should think like a little child. It means not expecting to know everything or wanting to be the best all the time; instead, we trust that GOD has all of the answers and will help us in His time.

Sometimes it can be hard to be a kid. Invite students to share any stories they might have of times when they have had to miss out on something or do it differently because of age. Share a personal anecdote if you have one. Maybe it is an earlier bed time, or not getting to watch a certain movie, or having to wait for things like driving a car and getting a job. Sometimes older people look down on kids. But Jesus wants people of ALL ages to come to him and trust Him, and He thinks kids are great! Isn’t that neat?

A winner in God’s eyes…remind students that they don’t have to be the “best” to be great in God’s eyes. Provide them with a cardboard cut-out trophy or ribbon—or better yet, pick up some real blue ribbons from a craft or supply store. Allow students to decorate and attach a caption along the lines of “I am a winner to God!”

Close with prayer and reminder of God’s work in our lives. Ask for trust and faith in His goodness and for humility and understanding. Thank God for opportunities to share His love with others and take care of them.

Lesson: Who’s the greatest?? Jesus loves kids! (Mark 9:33-42; Luke 18:15-17)
