Honor and Obedience
Pastor Glenn Newton (Kids Sermon) 5-30-04
Greet the Kids.... This morning we are going to have a good time learning about what
God has said.... How many of you know that God can talk to us?
Today we are going to focus and learn about two words that God has given to us... If you
will listen and learn what these two words mean.... Next Sunday during Sunday School, if
you can tell your teacher what these two words are that we are going to learn about
today.... they will have a small prize for you.... so let’s listen really good.
Object Lesson #1 “Quick Change” Listen to God you whole Life.
Say, Sometimes you might think that only grown ups need to listen to God. But
God wants everyone -- for their whole lives -- to listen to Him. When you listen to
someone, it’s important to pay careful attention to what the person says and does.
Let’s find out how good we are at paying attention.
1. Look at me for 10 seconds, pay attention to how I am dressed.
2. Close your eyes...... ( change one thing)
3. Ask the children to carefully look at you again, and raise your hand if you know
what change I made to how I look..... remember to talk about how they are paying
The Bible says, “Listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in
his eyes.” Exodus 15:26
What does this verse say about listening and paying careful attention?
say, Listening to God’s voice helps us know how to love and obey Him. We can listen to
God’s voice as we read and hear Bible stories and as we pray to Him.
So... Are your ready to Listen? Are you going to pay careful Attention? Good. Now I’m
going to tell you our Two Words that we are going to Learn about Today... Are You
The First Word Is “Honor”. On the count of three let’s say the word Honor real loud...
One, Two, Three... Honor.
The Bible tells us in the 10 Commandments, in fact it’s the 5th commandment..... “Honor
your Father and you Mother.”
What do you think it means to Honor our your Father and Mother? Anybody

We’ve learned about Honor... Now we are going to learn about our second word.... Obey.
To learn about our second Word...
We are going to learn about Obeying our parents... in this little video clip.... I want
you to watch and see if our little character obeys his Dad or not. (Finding Nemo, over the
edge scene when he gets caught)
Did Nemo obey his dad?
What happened because of it?
OK, we are going to need to go to a special place for our Bible story... do you want to go
