1 Chasing after God s word MEMORY VERSE FOR UNIT 2 A person who makes people feel good will feel good himself. PROVERBS 11:25b Turn to Page 70 for Memory Verse Center tips and suggestions. Fall Quarter, Week 7 Up on Top of the Roof [ ] Your Children Will Learn: o The woman was kind You can be kind, too Truth for Your Children Today s Bible Passage: 2 Kings 4:8-17 One day Elisha went to the town of Shunem. A rich woman lived there. She begged him to stay and have a meal. So every time he came by, he stopped there to eat. The woman said to her husband, That man often comes by here. I know that he is a holy man of God. Let's make a small room for him on the roof. We'll put a bed and a table in it. We'll also put a chair and a lamp in it. Then he can stay there when he comes to visit us. One day Elisha came. He went up to his room. He lay down there. He said to his servant Gehazi, Go and get the Shunammite woman. So he did. She stood in front of Elisha. He said to Gehazi, Tell her, You have gone to a lot of trouble for us. Now what can we do for you? [continued on page 70 sidebarj] Truth for You...A Meditation for Leaders The definition of kindness is, The quality of being warmhearted, considerate, humane and sympathetic. This list of qualities is filled with treasures to be unpacked one at a time. Consider the word humane, characterized by tenderness and compassion. Or consider warmhearted, marked by kindness, sympathy and generosity. Considerate is a wonderful word too, carefully considered; deliberate. Finally, sympathetic leads us to this definition, The fact or power of sharing the feelings of another, especially in sorrow or trouble; fellow feeling, compassion or commiseration. This nameless rich woman in 2 Kings 4, made such a significant contribution to Elisha s ministry. Her gift was so practical, right down to the table and lamp in the home away from home she created for her friend. No doubt this is a reflection of how she lived day to day. She knew that the word kindness is an action word. You should possess more and more of those good points. They will make you useful and fruitful as you get to know our Lord Jesus Christ better. (2 Peter 1:8) PAGE 69

2 Truth for Your children Today s Bible Passage 2 Kings 4:8-17 continued from page 69 Can we speak to the king for you? Or can we speak to the commander of the army for you? She replied, I live among my own people. I have everything I need here. After she left, Elisha asked Gehazi, What can we do for her? Gehazi said, Well, she doesn't have a son. And her husband is old. Then Elisha said, Bring her here again. So he did. She stood in the doorway. You will hold a son in your arms, Elisha said. It will be about this time next year. No, my master! she objected. You are a man of God. So don't lie to me! But the woman became pregnant. She had a baby boy. It happened the next year about that same time. That's exactly what Elisha had told her would happen.

4 I Can Do That! EASY IDEAS FOR CREATIVE STORYTELLING: 2 Kings 4: minutes (Age 3) 15 minutes (Ages 4 & 5) Make Elisha s Room To make Elisha s room, bring the following items: A bed. This can be very simple such as a sleeping bag you roll out on the floor. Or it can be more elaborate such as an inflatable mattress that you inflate in front of the children. Make it up with blankets and a pillow. A chair. Use a classroom chair, folding chair or a bean bag chair. A table. Bring a folding card table, or use a sturdy box. A lamp. Bring in a small lamp and don t forget an extension cord so you can plug it in. Story Time Introduction Hi, boys and girls! We ve been learning about Elisha. Elisha was a prophet. Who can tell me what a prophet is? (Let the children answer.) A prophet is someone who hears God talk to them and tells other people what God said. Last week we learned that Elisha helped people. He helped the woman and her two little boys. Do you remember how Elisha helped her? (Let the children answer.) Elisha told the woman to collect lots of jars from her friends and neighbors. Then she filled all of them with olive oil from just the little bit she had! That was such a great story! Today we have another great story about Elisha. Bible Story THE WOMAN WAS KIND YOU CAN BE KIND, TOO Storyteller: The lesson from the Bible starts here. See the I Can Do That sidebar on this page for storytelling ideas. One day Elisha went to the city of Shunem. Shunem was a city that Elisha liked to travel to. He had friends who lived there. It was a woman and her husband. The woman was very rich. Every time Elisha came to town, the woman would invite him over for dinner. Elisha enjoyed going to their house. The woman was a great cook! And the woman was kind. She was so kind to Elisha every time he came to visit. Well, the woman and her husband were talking while they were eating breakfast one day. Elisha had just been to their house the night before for dinner. They all had a really wonderful time. The woman said, Husband, you know Elisha is a prophet. And a prophet is someone who hears God talk to them and tells other people what God said. I like him a lot. I think we should make a room for him up on top of the roof. What do you think? The husband answered his wife. He said, Up on top of the roof? The wife replied, Sure! We could put a bed in the room. We could add a table, a chair and a lamp too. We could make it really comfortable. What do you say? Boys and girls, it might sound kind of funny to put a room on top of a roof. But the woman and her husband didn t live in a house like you and I live in. They lived in a house with a flat roof. Sometimes it got so hot, that they would go up on top of their roof to stay cool. Sometimes, they would even sleep or eat up there. Well, the woman s husband said that he thought it was a wonderful idea. PAGE 72

5 Story Time [cont.] So they made a room up on top of the roof, just for Elisha. They carried up a bed and placed it in the room. (Bring out a sleeping bag or inflatable bed and set it up with a pillow and blanket. Describe to the children how comfortable and cozy the bed feels.) Then, they brought up a table and a chair so Elisha could sit and read a book or eat a snack. (Bring out a small table or sturdy cardboard box and a chair. Set them up and describe what a nice table it is and how comfortable the chair is. Describe what a great spot it is to sit and read a book.) Finally, they put a lamp in his room. (Bring out a lamp and plug it in. Talk about how nice it will be to have a lamp so Elisha can see at night.) Well, the woman and her husband looked at the room and decided that it was just right for Elisha. The woman was kind to Elisha. And so on Elisha s next visit to the house, the woman and her husband showed him the room up on top of the roof. Elisha was so happy to have a place where he could rest. In fact, he went to his room up on top of the roof to lay down on the bed. The woman was kind to Elisha. So, he wanted to do something kind for the woman too. Elisha called his servant and asked him to go and get the woman. The servant went and got the woman. The woman came up to the room up on top of the roof. She stood in front of Elisha. Elisha said, You have been so kind to me. What can I do for you? Would you like me to speak to the king for you? The woman said to Elisha, You don t need to speak to the king for me. I m happy here with all my friends and family. I have everything that I need. Then the woman left the room up on top of the roof. After she left, Elisha said to his servant, This woman has been so kind. What can we do for her? The servant said, Her husband is getting very old, and she doesn t have any children yet. Elisha said to his servant, Go and get the woman again. The servant called for the woman to come back up to Elisha s room up on the top of the roof. The woman came and stood at the door to the room. Elisha said to the woman, My friend, you are going to have a little baby boy by this time next year. The woman looked at Elisha. She said to him, You are just plain silly! My husband is too old. We can t have any children. But later on she discovered that, sure enough, she was going to have a baby! And that s exactly what happened. The next year, the woman had a little baby boy, just like Elisha had told her she would. Great Big Holy Bible The text and pictures in the Great Big Holy Bible follow your Bible lesson closely.

The definition of kindness is, The quality of being warmhearted, considerate, humane and sympathetic. This list of qualities is filled with treasures to be unpacked one at a time. Consider the word humane, characterized by tenderness and compassion. Or consider warmhearted, marked by kindness, sympathy and generosity. Considerate is a wonderful word too, carefully considered; deliberate. Finally, sympathetic leads us to this definition, The fact or power of sharing the feelings of another, especially in sorrow or trouble; fellow feeling, compassion or commiseration. This nameless rich woman in 2 Kings 4, made such a significant contribution to Elisha s ministry. Her gift was so practical, right down to the table and lamp in the home away from home she created for her friend. No doubt this is a reflection of how she lived day to day.
