Protection in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry
The topic of protection can be sensitive, especially when considering situations where people are not protected by God. It is important to approach this topic with care and sensitivity, and to acknowledge that sometimes God's protection may not be understood or may not align with our expectations.
In the Bible, we see examples of God protecting people from physical harm, such as the story of Daniel in the lion's den or the Israelites being protected from the plagues in Egypt. However, we also see examples of people who were not protected from harm, such as the martyrdom of the apostles and the persecution of early Christians.
Questions to consider with children include: How does God protect us from harm? What are some ways that we can be protected by God? Are there times when we feel like God hasn't protected us? How can we trust in God's protection even when we don't understand it?
