Kids Bible Lesson 7 - Sodom and Gomorrah
Week 7 the girls learned about the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
This is a story about God’s judgment and mercy. The point we tried to drive home is that God wanted to get rid of the wickedness before it spread, but he did save those who were righteous. Enjoy!
If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Bible Story Tips
We read the story “Sodom and Gomorrah” beginning on page 13 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.
During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.
Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “Why did God have to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?”
We taught our daughters that just sometimes God has to destroy wickedness before it spreads, but he will save those who are righteous.
After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook.
After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.
Bible Song about Sodom and Gomorrah
The Bible song for this week is "This Little Light of Mine".
We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.
