Work as a group to build a small model of a temple with building blocks.

Talk about how easy it was to destroy what you had built.
Like King David, we often want to build something that lasts but we need to remember that God is the one who builds things that last.
God promised that his son would build his house and that God himself would make a kingdom that will last forever. God’s forever kingdom is found in his people through King Jesus.
Help me to remember that God is the one who builds things that last, not me. Thank you for sending your son Jesus to build your forever kingdom. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
