Have several of the children tell you promises that someone has made to them. Then have them tell you about promises that people made to them which were not kept and how it made them feel.
Now have the children proceed to tell you promises that God has made and kept to them (These may be instances of healing, comfort, provision, friendship, protection, encouragement, loving them, etc.). Remark upon the difference between God’s promise-keeping record and people’s. People are not perfect; God is. People will hurt them and fail them; God never will!
Have a time of prayer. Have special prayer for those who are obviously still hurting from people’s broken promises. Follow by closing in a prayer of thanks to God for always keeping His promises.
Prayer Point: Pray for those hurting because of broken promises. Thank God for always keeping His promises.
