Restoring The Temple

It had been over 150 years since Solomon built a temple for God. It was old and needed repair! Young king Joash led the repair, but he didn’t do it alone. Many people came together to give their time, money, service and talent. How can we relate this to our children today? 

If you wanted to raise $20, to ask 1 child for $20 is a lot! But, what if 20 children gave $1 each? Or, ask a child to lift a table right off the floor. They probably can’t, but many children could (please use discretion if doing this example in real life!). If there’s a mess on the ground, or it’s time to clean up after craft, point out how much quicker it is when they all work together.
