Enough Burger King Crowns for each of the children
I WEARING A CROWN
I have a crown for everyone of you boys and girls (HOLD UP BURGER KING CROWN). I will give you your crown after we pray.
Now, I wonder if you can tell me, who wears a crown? (GET CHILDREN TO RESPOND THAT KINGS AND QUEENS WEAR CROWNS)
II STUDYING THE BIBLE
This morning I am reading a passage from the Bible that tells us that everyone here -- you, me, the people in the pews -- can also wear a crown.
How can we wear a crown if we are not a king or a queen? The Bible tells us this morning that anyone who eagerly listens to the Gospel of Christ and spends time studying the Bible is noble; they are people who can wear crowns.
Do you want to wear a crown? RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU DO. Well, then, you need to spend time listening to the Bible. You need to listen when your Sunday School teacher talks about Jesus. You need to pay attention when dad and mom read the Bible at home.
