We are so excited that you are here with us! Today we are going to the story of a man named Daniel and learn that God is stronger than a Lion. Before we get started, if this is your first time here with us click the link below, we'd love to say hello.

Today's Lesson about Daniel and the Lions Den.

Let's talk about it.

Lets play a little game to see what you remember about this Story:

Where did Daniel get carried off to and live during this whole story.
Babylon or Persia
What law did Persian leaders present to the king.
That people could only pray to the King
What was the name of that King?
King Darius
Why did they arrest Daniel?
Because Daniel prayed to God
Where did they put Daniel when he was arrested?
In a Den of Lions
How did Daniel survive being eaten by the lions?
He prayed and God shut the lions mouth

What a great story… 

IT’S SO EXCITING. I BET THE KING WAS SURPRISED TO SEE DANIEL ALIVE! I THINK THERE ARE SOME GREAT LESSONS IN THIS STORY FOR US TO DISCUSS.

What do you think?

1. What should we do when people talk about us behind our back like the Persian leaders did to Daniel?

Daniel ignored it and trusted God. He kept on praying and didn’t let someone else’s poor attitude give him an excuse to do something wrong as well.

2. If people tell you to stop praying and say that trusting in God is dumb,
how should you respond?


We respond in love, we give people the reason for the hope we have (which is Jesus!), but we continue to trust God and pray to Him. Remember, we listen to God and His Word over that of other people.

3. What should we do when we are faced with a tough choice?

Daniel had a tough choice, but he chose to honor God. That should be our response as well…. ask yourself, how can I honor God with my choices? Usually just by answering that question and praying about it, we’ll know what to do in even a tough situation.

Craft Time!

Let's make a Lion.

To help us remember that God is Stronger Than a Lion, let’s make a lion today. First, you’ll need.. a paper plate, some markers, crayons, or paints and some yellow, orange, brown construction paper or tissue paper, glue, and scissors. If you don’t have the construction paper, no worries! You can use your markers too.

We'd love to see your lion, tag us on Instagram.

Let's pray!

Dear God, Thank you for being stronger than a lion. We know that you are bigger and stronger than anything! Thank you for protecting us! Amen. Thank you for learning with us this week.

See you
next week!
