Patience / impatience in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Patience and impatience are important themes in the Bible. God asks us to be patient and have faith in him, even when we don't understand what is happening or when we face challenges.

The Bible also reminds us that impatience can lead to anger, frustration, and other negative emotions that can harm ourselves and those around us.

Children's workers can help children understand these lessons by sharing stories and teachings from the Bible about patience and why it is important. By learning about patience, children can develop the skills they need to be kind, understanding, and peaceful in their daily lives.

On this page you will find creative ideas, resources and activities relating to patience and impatience which you can use in your children’s work, children’s church, Sunday school, or Christian primary school.
