Faith Kids: Anger

King Saul becomes so angry with David that he eventually attacks him (1 Samuel 16:14-25, 17:1-18:11)

Big Idea
When you are angry, don't lose control.

Bible Verse
Ephesians 4:26 - "
When you are angry, do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry." (NIrV)

What We Did

1. We described things that "pushed our buttons" while taking buttons and pushing them into playdough.
2. We acted out the story of Saul and David, with Brianna playing beautiful music on the harp (actually, a ukelele) and Kaleb throwing a spear (a foam swimming noodle).
3. As we learned our verse, we took turns throwing play darts at a dart board (with extreme adult supervision, rest assured!) This helped us remember our story, where Saul got so angry he started tossing spears at people. When we tallied up the points, Leiah was our dart throwing champion!
4. We discussed things we could do when we become angry to help us keep under control, including praying, going for a walk, and listening to music.

Materials We Used
1. Lesson Plan
2. Small Group Leader Sheet
3. Verse Activity
