Lesson Review – Matthew 6:19-34 – Treasure in Heaven


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Matthew 6:19-34 – Treasure in Heaven.

This is lesson 16 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 94 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 16 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

The more we see and savor Jesus and the glorious treasures (forgiveness, adoption, righteousness, love, and so much more) that are ours through faith in his death in our place for our sins and resurrection in victory, the less value earthly treasure will hold.

The Lesson In A Sentence

Jesus teaches his follower that we can not serve two masters but that we should treasure and trust him.

Questions For You Kids

Parents, we have provided some basic answers to the questions so that when your child inevitably says, “I don’t remember,” you can feed them some clues and help them recount the lesson.

In your lesson, Jesus talked about our treasures. What is a treasure?  Do you have anything you treasure?

A treasure is something that we really love a whole lot. For adults, treasure usually relates to money (as Jesus addresses this directly in the story). For kids, treasures are often physical things since they don’t usually understand the “love of money.” We can often identify our treasures by asking, “what would you miss if you didn’t have it anymore?”

What did Jesus say we should do with our treasures?

We shouldn’t make our (earthly) treasures the most important thing. We should make Jesus our greatest treasure (most important thing) and trust in him.

Jesus gave some examples of things that don’t worry, but God takes care of them. Do you remember any?

Birds – God feeds them even though they don’t grow food for themselves.
Flowers – They don’t make clothes, but they are beautifully “dressed.”

Is there anything you worry about (makes you scared)?

Accept any answer and then pray with your child about their concern.
