Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – Lost Donkeys Are Found


Teaching children about the Bible miracles is important because it helps them to see how nothing is impossible for God.  If God can do miracles in the Bible, He can do them in our children’s lives today.  Here is an easy way to do that interactively.

Today let’s focus on a Bible miracle from the book of 1 Samuel:  The Lost Donkeys are Found (1 Samuel 9:3-21)

Samuel was the last judge of God’s People (Israel).  God had told Samuel that the next day he would send to him a man who would be the next leader of His people.

Ask the children…

How did God get Saul to go out so he could be found by Samuel?

“One day Kish’s donkeys strayed away, and he told Saul, ‘Take a servant with you, and go look for the donkeys.’” (1 Samuel 9:3)

When they couldn’t find the donkeys, why did Saul and his servant need to go and find Samuel?

“But the servant said, ‘I’ve just thought of something! There is a man of God who lives here in this town. He is held in high honor by all the people because everything he says comes true. Let’s go find him. Perhaps he can tell us which way to go.’” (1 Samuel 9:6)

What did God tell Samuel he would send to him the next day?

“About this time tomorrow I will send you a man (Saul) from the land of Benjamin. Anoint him to be the leader of my people, Israel. He will rescue them from the Philistines, for I have looked down on my people in mercy and have heard their cry.” (1 Samuel 9:16)

Samuel was a seer, what did God tell Samuel to tell Saul about the lost donkeys?

“And don’t worry about those donkeys that were lost three days ago, for they have been found.” (1 Samuel 9:20)

God has a wonderful plan for His people, and He will even use lost donkeys to get His plan accomplished.  He will use simple things in your life today to do miraculous things.

Now you can see how Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world.  Glory to Him!!!
