Welcome to week 31!

This week your children will learn about how to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.

Jesus continued the Sermon on the Mountain with the important lesson of being salt of the earth and light of the world. Jesus taught the crowd to preserve the good and let your light shine for the world to see.


In this Bible lesson, the children learn that your light shines through good deeds that glorify God. So allow Jesus to work through you to create a way for all people to be saved.

Happy learning!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Children's bible lesson about the salt and light - Key Concepts

The key concepts that we focused on this week are:

  • You are the salt of the earth and light of the world.

  • Let your light shine before others.

  • Teach others about Jesus through good deeds.

You can also come up with your own key concepts.

Bible Verse for kids
The Bible verse for this lesson is Matthew 5:16

“Let your light shine before others”.
This Bible verse should be simple enough for your toddler to memorize after a week of practice.

Bible Story Tips

  • We read “Salt and Light” beginning on page 61 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, “What happens when other
    people see our light?”

  • Throughout the Bible lesson we reiterated that we can teach others about Jesus through our actions.

  • 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 salt and light

  • The Bible song for this week is "Light of the World".

  • We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.

bright light bible activity

In a world that is filled with so much darkness, God wants his followers to be a bright light. In a world that is growing worse day by day, God wants his followers to preserve it and to keep it from going completely bad.

We do this by doing good and showing others Gods love.

We had fun with the "Bright Light Bible Activity".  While we created the raised salt painting, we talked about some ways we can show God's love through our actions.

When we display good attitudes and behaviors, we can teach others about Jesus.

We made a Bible craft as a reminder to the girls to let Jesus shine through them.
