Welcome!  This post is part of our Teaching Kids the Catechism in a Protestant Church series.   If you’re new here, you might want to check out the other posts in the series:

This week, we’re embarking on Question #13: Can God Do All Things?

Can God Do All Things

Answer:

Yes.  God can do all his holy will.

Supporting Scripture:

Psalm 147:5

Jeremiah 32:17

Daniel 4:34-35

Ephesians 1:11

You probably remember posing a question something along these lines as a child.  It went something like “If God can do anything, can He make a rock so big that He can’t lift it?”  It’s interesting how we are so eager to diminish God’s power or subdue Him into human strength.  In reality, the limits of God’s abilities and power are so astounding, we could never begin to understand it.

This week’s Bible story is about Daniel and the Lion’s Den, a classic church story.  You can find the whole story in Daniel 6 and you can review the story with this super silly video I made a few years back.

If you’re looking for some supplemental activities for this lesson, you’ve come to the right place!  Of course, there is a plethora of activities online for this story.  I’ve picked out a few of my favorites below!

Love this one, but the cuteness factor does detract a bit from the seriousness of the story!  Find the instructions at Parents.com
