God gives us directions to help us follow him – Matthew 2:1-12 and 22:37-39

It might seem a bit odd to revisit the Christmas story but the Magi came from the east, which is interpreted by lots of people to be from Persia which is modern day Iran. It is at least 600 miles away so it would have taken them a while to arrive!

Teaching Objective for the children to understand:

  1. God directed The Magi, men who studied stars, to Jesus by a star.
  2. God gives us directions on how to live
  3. The most important directions are to love God and to love others (Matthew 22:37-39)

 

Key verse: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. Matthew 22:37
