    It's always nice to have something extra for the kids to do. It's also nice to be able to send a little something home with them.

    This Sunday School coloring page has one of the Romans 12 bible verses printed on the bottom along with an extra verse listed on the page of the bible the little boy has open. The verse is James 1:19 KJV.

    One of the main purposes of the Romans 12 lesson is to reinforce to children that God will take care of us and if we get angry, we should stop and think before yelling or being mean to someone.

    For this Sunday School game you'll need a rope of some sort, a ribbon or bandanna, and a piece of colored tape. A jump rope will work great for smaller classes. You'll also need some pretend food or if you serve snacks to your class, you could use real food. For larger classes, groups can take turns. Taking turns can be hard for some children, so be sure to remind them that we should be nice and slow to anger.

    How to Play the Feed Your Enemy Sunday School Game

    Divide the kids up into groups of two or three. You should have two groups per game. You will be doing a tug-of-war. Have a piece of tape or a chalk line on the floor so the kids will know where to pull the other team too.

    Lay the jump rope on the floor. Measure to the center and tie the ribbon or bandanna. This will serve as your flag. Have one group stand on one side of the flag and the other group stand on the other.

    When you're ready, have the kids pick up the rope and stand still. Be sure they are listening. Reinforce the bible verse where they should be quick to listen. When you say go, let the kids begin pulling. The team whose side crosses over the middle line must say the bible verse above.

    The point of this game is to teach them to be slow to anger. Once they say the verse, allow them to give food to the other team just like the bible story 'Romans 12: Feed Your Enemy' talked about. If you wish, you can also allow them to pass out the drinks.

    Before ending the game, try to divide the teams up again to allow all the kids a turn to say the verse and pass out the food and drinks.

    Ask them what they remember from the game. You're looking for them to say...

    • be slow to anger
    • feed your enemy
    • let God take care of things for you
    • give your enemy drinks
    • be slow to speak
    • listen carefully
    • and other things that pertain to the verses and story
    Sunday School Lessons can be taught through bible verses that help children prepare for everyday life. The bible isn't just filled with wonderful stories, miracles, and history. It's filled with help for our daily lives.

    It teaches us how we should live, how we should act, and how we should treat others. Today's Sunday School lesson comes from Romans 12:19-21 (KJV).

    Feed Your Enemy

    The last three verses of Romans 12 can teach us many things. First, begin by reading the verses or let the kids take turns reading them. Here they are for your reference right now.

    19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
    20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
    21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

    After reading these verses, ask the kids, 'Have you ever gotten so angry that you did something you shouldn't?'

    Give the kids time to answer. Sometimes when you hear an answer that you've not thought of it can lead you to explain things in a way that will help the kids understand better.

    Once the kids have finished, talk about the first verse you read (verse 19). It says, ...avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

    If needed, you can re-read the verse for older kids or just jump right in for younger kids.

    Sunday School Lesson

    Have you ever wanted to get back at someone who was mean to you? I'm sure we all have. Maybe your sister or brother took your favorite toy. You may want to go into their room and take their favorite thing and hide it or even do something bad to it.
    Or, maybe a kid at school is stole your favorite pencil. You may want to sneak into their desk and take their pencil or pen just to get them back.
    Did you know that the bible tells us we are not suppose to do that? It says that we are not suppose to be mean to someone or do something to someone just because they did it to us first. The bible tells us that vengeance, or punishment (revenge), is left up to God.
    When someone does something to us, we are to let God handle it. That doesn't mean if someone is hurting us or bullying us we shouldn't tell. We should tell a teacher or a parent because God has put them here to take care of us too.
    We are to pray for that person and tell God what has happened, then we are to let God do His will with the situation.
    So, what can we do besides pray and leave it it God's hands?
    The bible tells us in verse 20...
    20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 
    We are to be nice to that person. The bible says if that person is hungry we should feed them or if they are thirsty we should give them something to drink. We may not always be able to give the person being mean to us something to eat or drink, but we can be nice to them. God doesn't want us to act stuck-up or spiteful to anyone.
    By showing kindness, God says it is like heaping coals of fire on his head. What does that mean?

    One thing it means is that if you are nice to that person they will begin to feel guilty for what they've done. This isn't always the case, though. Some kids are very mean and don't feel bad about anything they do. This is where praying for them and letting God handle it is important.
    In the last verse, verse 21, it says...
    21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
    When things don't go our way, we shouldn't let anger and hate consume us. We are to let the good shine through even when it's tough. Getting angry, yelling, and screaming is human nature, but remember it's not what Jesus would do, is it?

    We should always think about what Jesus would do and try to act as much like Him as we can. Put a smile on your face and let the good shine through.

    Have you ever heard of the song, 'This Little Light of Mine?'

    We are to let God's light shine through all the time.

    Take the time to sing This Little Light of Mine as a reminder of how we should act.
