Kids Bible Lesson 32 - The Wise and Foolish Builders
Welcome to week 32! This week your children learn the story of the wise and foolish builders. Jesus liked to teach crowds with a parable. Parables are short stories Jesus
used to teach people the difference between right and wrong. Jesus told the crowd, it is wise to build on a strong foundation, but foolish to build on a weak foundation. In this lesson, the children learn that Jesus is the strong foundation to build on. Allow Jesus to work through you to create a way for all people to be saved. Have fun learning!
