Lesson Review – 2 Corinthians 9 – God Loves a Cheerful Giver


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied 2 Corinthians 9 – God Loves a Cheerful Giver

This is lesson 57 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 135 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 57 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Because God has given us the greatest gift in reconciling us tohimself through Jesus’ death, we are now free to give to others.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Paul was encouraging the Corinthian church, which had made a collection of funds to give to Christians that were in need in Jerusalem. In his letter he helped the Corinthians understand how they should be giving: generously, cheerfully, willingly, and to the glory of God.

Questions for Discussion

What is the greatest gift that has ever been given? 

The greatest gift is Jesus. He came to save us all by living the life we couldn’t live and dying the death we deserve to die so that we can be made right with God.

God is a giver and he wants us to give too. What are some things that we can give?

Accept any answer, but help the kids see that in addition to typical things like money, food, gifts, they can also give of their time and their talents.

How does God want us to give?

Generously, cheerfully, willingly, and to the glory of God. Help your kids flesh out these ideas by giving examples of their opposites and asking if that is how God wants us to give.

Praying together

Take time to pray with your child, asking God to help you both know when and how he would like you to give to others. Talk with your child about one or two ways you can apply the lesson in your lives this week.
