Use this Christian object lesson using math to illustrate just how much God loves us. It will definitely catch kid's attention!



Theme: God's love goes over and beyond 100 percent!

Object: The following math demonstration.

Scripture: Romans 5:8; Jeremiah 31:3; Romans 8:38-39

Christian object lesson: How many of you like Math? Today we're going to have a math lesson to find out how much God loves us.

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100%.

How about ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula for our math object lesson that might help answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And:

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But:

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and

Attitude will get you there,

It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!


Read Romans 5:8 and discuss how God loves us just the way we are. He sent Jesus to die even while we were still sinners.

Read Jeremiah 31:3 and talk about what the word "everlasting" means. God loves us with an everlasting love; it will never end.

Read Romans 8:38-39 and explain that nothing can separate us from the love of God. Disease can take away our health, sadness can take away our happiness, a thief can steal our money, but NO one can take Jesus away from us!

End in a prayer thanking God for His great love.
