Sunday School Activities about Abraham and Lot

Some Bible stories are harder to teach than others

Spiritual concepts such as the rewards promised for putting others first can be difficult for children to grasp, making some Bible stories harder to teach than others. Fortunately, there's a resource available to help you plan Sunday school activities for stories like Abraham and Lot to teach children to put others first. Children's Worship Bulletins has hundreds of bulletin activities for stories from nearly all the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Epistles.

Sunday school activity about Abraham and Lot for ages 7-12: What did Abram say to Lot?

Activity Preparation:

  • Print a bulletin page for each child
  • Prepare small bags of candy, enough bags for each member of the Abraham team
  • Collect stickers or other small prizes, enough prizes for each member of the Lot team
  • Gather small vegetables, enough vegetables for each member of the Abraham team (e.g., carrot, celery, zucchini, broccoli floret, etc.)

Activity directions:

  1. On one side of the classroom, lay out the vegetables. On the other side, lay out stickers/small prizes.
  2. Distribute a bulletin page to each child. Discuss the story of Abraham and Lot, emphasizing that Abraham gave Lot first choice of the land.
  3. Divide the children into two teams by having them count off in twos. Once divided, designate the group of ones "Abraham" and the group of twos "Lot." Organize the children into two, single-file lines.
  4. Explain the activity. "Abraham allowed Lot to choose first. One at a time, our Abrahams are going to allow our Lots first choice between the stickers or the vegetables. When it's your turn, Abraham say to Lot, 'Let's not fight. If you choose a vegetable, I'll choose a prize. If you choose a prize, I'll choose a vegetable.' Then Abraham, allow Lot to choose. Whatever Lot chooses, you must take the opposite."
  5. Starting with the first Abraham, allow the children to act out the choice Abraham gave Lot.
  6. When all the children have taken either a sticker or a vegetable, ask the Abraham group how it felt to give Lot first choice. Ask the Lots how it felt to be allowed to make the first choice. Lead a discussion about why sharing and giving the other person first choice instead of arguing would be more pleasing to God.
  7. Before ending the game, review Genesis 13:14-17. Then, give all the Abrahams a bag of candy. Discuss how allowing Lot to choose first feels now that they've been rewarded with something nicer than either the sticker or vegetable. Ask the children to imagine how treating someone better than you'd treat yourself may be rewarded in heaven.
  8. Read aloud Genesis 13:1-18 to reinforce the lesson.
