God’s Always Keeps His Promises | Responsibility Activity

Responsibility is “Accepting and completing the work I am supposed to do.” This means knowing what things you are expected to do and then doing them.

Supplies Needed:
Small rocks
Sieve, strainer, or colander

 Explain to your child that the sand represents smaller promises and the rocks represent bigger, more important promises. Over the tray, start pouring half of the rocks and half of the sand into the sieve. The sieve represents people. They usually keep their bigger promises, but sometimes people don’t always keep all of their small promises. Then pour the other half of the rocks and sand into the jar. This represents God. Unlike people, God always keeps all His promises.

Talk About It: When you poured the rocks and sand into the jar, they didn’t fall out. No matter how big or small God’s promises are, He keeps them all. You can find the promises God has made in His Word, the Bible. One promise that He has made is in Hebrews 13:5b. It says, “For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’” As you read the Bible you can look for promises God has made and remember that He will always keep His promises.
