Teach kids about Grace : a lesson on the Prodigal Son

By definition grace means undeserved favor. The grace God shows us is undeserved for sure, but it is something He gives us because He loves us so much. But how do we teach kids about grace?

When thinking about grace, there is a great parable Jesus tells about a father son relationship. You are probably familiar with the Parable of the Prodigal Son. This is the perfect passage to use when preparing to teach kids about grace.

Teach kids about grace

The son was ungrateful. He asked for his inheritance early, then left home. He wanted nothing more to do with his father nor his family.

When he had used up all his money, he found himself working as a pig feeder, and to make it worse the pigs had better food to eat than he did.

He finally came to his senses and decided to return home with the plan to become a servant to his father.

When he returned home, not only did his father welcome him back with open arms, he threw a party! He thought he had lost his son forever, but his son returned home to the family.

That is the picture we get of God’s love for us. No matter what we do, or how foolish we act, He still loves us, and he shows us grace.

If you are wanting to teach your kids about grace, this lesson will be of benefit to you. With a bottom line of “I can show grace because God showed me grace”, this lesson uses the passage on the Prodigal Son from Luke 2:11-32. You can teach your kids about the grace God extends to us, no matter what we do, and also help them learn about extending grace.
