Dddddddding went the bell at 1st Baptist Church
"Class lets settle down now," said Mrs. Anderson. Mrs. Anderson had been teaching second graders for about 15 years.
"Class, today we are going to learn about the story of the prodigal son," said Mrs. Anderson. "Raise you hand if you have ever heard of this story?" asked Mrs. Anderson. 3 kids raised their hand. "Good" she said.
"For those of you that never heard about the prodigal son, here is what happened," exclaimed Mrs. Anderson. The kids had smiles on the faces, and they were listening intently.
"A man had 2 sons. The younger son asked to have all of his inheritance, and decided to leave home, and went to another country to live on his own,” said Mrs. Anderson. "Well he spent all of his inheritance, and decided that he is going to need to get a job. One day he got to thinking Gee wiz, you know I was better off when I lived at home. When I was at home I was never as hungry as I am now" said Mrs. Anderson.
"I bet you guys never have been hungry before like the son was?" asked Mrs. Anderson.
All the kids in the class laughed at what Mrs. Anderson said.
"He said, I miss my family I want to go back home, and that is what he did. Along way from home his dad saw him, and felt sorry for him and ran up to him and hugged him. He said to this father I am not worthy to be called your son," said Mrs. Anderson.
"Do you know what the father said?" asked Mrs. Anderson "hogwash! He told the servants to put the best cloths on him and were going to have a party said the father. Now the other son came home after working in the field and was jealous," said Mrs. Anderson.
"He asked the servants what was going on, and they said that they were throwing a party for your other brother that has come back home. Now the other brother is angry with his dad. He asked his dad why don't you ever throw me a party? His dad said you always with me and everything I have is yours this is a special celebration because your brother was lost but now he was found," said Mrs. Anderson.
"What One thing is the Lord wanting to teach us?" asked Mrs. Anderson. A couple of kids raised their hands. " Jamie," Mrs. Anderson called out.
"Don't run away," Jamie said
"Well that is sort of correct but it is not," replied Mrs. Anderson
"The Lord wanted to show us how much he cares about us. Also did you know when someone receives Jesus the angels celebrate in heaven," said Mrs. Anderson.
"Now isn't that a great story?" asked Mrs. Anderson.
"Yea," the kids screamed
"We will see you next week, I hope you have a great week," said Mrs. Anderson
