1. Children should be able to tell the story of Job – his losses and his struggle with Satan.
  2. Children should know that Job did not curse God.


Possible Lesson Plan:

  1. Open with prayer.


  1. Read the story of Job from the Arch Book on Job. It’s not in our storybooks.


  1. True/False questions:

                                        True                                                    False

                  God allowed Satan to hurt Job.                God hurt Job.

                  Job loved God.                                         Job hated God.

                  God rules all the world.                            Satan rules all the world.

                  God gave Job a new family and riches.    Job died sick and poor.


  1. Talk about sickness and sadness: Have we ever been sad or sick? How do we feel? How should we treat others who are sick or sad? Did Job’s friends show love for him? Make “Get Well” cards for a hospital or nursing home. Who will deliver them?


  1. Make a Bible Movie: For each child, take a business-size envelope. Seal it and cut off the ends. Cut a window like a TV screen in the front. Cut a strip of paper wide enough for the envelope and about 18 inches long. Divide it into sections like a comic strip, leaving the first and last 3 inches blank. Have the students draw the story of Job like a comic strip in the spaces.  Then pull it through the envelope like a movie, telling the story as you go.

  1. Close with prayer.
