When God called Abraham, he promised that his offspring would be more numerous than the stars in the sky. In today’s story we’ll see the greatness of the stars. God has galaxies of stars, and each star has a name.
Did you know that the stars sing? There are huge telescopes that capture the sounds of the stars. Some sounds are rhythmic; others are sounds like a violin.
Here is a links for YouTube where you can hear this:
The theme of stars is meant to celebrate Star, Daisy’s new friend. In The Treasure Club, Miss Beatrice played the video of God’s orchestra for the children. If possible, bring a laptop to class and let the students see the video. Just listen for one or two minutes, so the children have the experience of hearing to the stars. Too long might make them bored.
The purpose is to focus on the greatness of our God, who has created the stars, who orders them one by one, and who calls them by name. But the most wonderful thing is that God knows each person. I want the children to realize that God knows each one by name and cares about every detail of their lives. So great is His love and care that even the very hairs of our head are numbered (Matthew 10:30).
Our focus should always be on the redemptive work of Jesus. Praise his name!
If you have a child with disability in your class, make her feel loved and cared for. And speak to the children about showing love for those who are different.
