Compliments in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Giving and receiving compliments is a way to show love and appreciation for others, and it can have a positive impact on our relationships. The Bible teaches us to encourage one another and to speak words of kindness and truth. By learning from the examples set by Bible characters and the teachings of scripture, we can help the children in our care to understand the power of a well-placed compliment and to develop the habit of speaking kindly to others. Let's learn together how to use our words to build each other up!

Giving compliments mean discovering what you find good, clever or noteworthy in the other person and expressing this positively to the other person. Compliments can be spoken or written down. Compliments validate the good in the other person. As humans, we are often highly sensitive to compliments. A true compliment, paid in a sincere way, can be a great encouragement for the other person.

On this page you will find creative ideas, resources and activities relating to compliments which you can use in your kid’s work, kidsmin, Sunday school lessons or Christian elementary school.
