Daily Tip - Creation: 10. The first name

Everyday tip for your Sunday school lesson or children’s ministry


# Object lesson on creation

Bible verse:

Genesis 1: 5 “God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day." - NIV 

The first name

Imagine if we had a world without names. What would your mother and father call you? What about the friends you play with? Do you get a number or do the others say, "Hey, you there!"

Our name is so important. It makes us who we are. Just feel how strange it is when you suddenly have a different name.

Let the children sit in a circle. Give each child the name of a child sitting to the left of him or her.

Have the child sitting to his or her right ask a question with this name in it. For example, "What's your favorite food, Robert?" And so go through the circle.

It's weird to suddenly get the name of your neighbour and discover that your other neighbour now has your name.

Names are very important. And the first name is given by... God.

And do you know who gets the first name?

Light! Light gets its first name from God. God gives light the name 'Day'
