The Children’s Sermon
You’ll Need:
● A book of jokes and riddles (optional)
● A sponge (optional)
Do This:
SAY: You know what a riddle is, don't you? It is a word puzzle — a question that
makes you think. Sometimes riddles are funny. You might have heard this one:
"Why did the chicken cross the road?" The answer is, "To get to the other side."
Here are a couple funny riddles.
Q: Mary's father has four children; three are named Nana, Nene, and Nini. What is
the fourth child's name?
A: Mary! (You may have to explain.)
Q: What is full of holes but still holds water?
A: A sponge! (You might show a sponge.)
Riddles have been around since the time of Jesus. Maybe longer than that. One day,
Jesus was approached by a group of Sadducees — religious leaders who did not
believe in heaven.

The Sadducees were trying to trick Jesus into agreeing that people couldn’t live
with God in heaven. They asked Him to answer this riddle: "The law of Moses says
that if a man dies, leaving a wife but no children, his brother should marry the
widow and have a child who will carry on the brother’s name. Well, suppose there
were seven brothers. The oldest one married and then died without children. So the
second brother married the widow, but he also died. Then the third brother married
her. This continued until all seven brothers had married the same woman. Finally,
the woman also died. So tell us, whose wife will she be after the resurrection since
all seven were married to her!"
My, that is a tricky riddle, isn't it? Listen to Jesus' answer.

Jesus said, "Marriage is for people here on earth. But in the age to come, those who
are raised from the dead will not marry or be married. Not only that, but they will
never die again. They will live forever as the children of God."
After Jesus answered their riddle so wisely, no one dared to ask Him any more
questions.

Now, you and I know that Jesus promised us that if we love Him and trust in Him,
we will live forever in heaven with Him. Isn't it sad that some people do not believe
in heaven? Oh, that reminds me of one more riddle!

Q. Why were the people in today's Bible lesson called Sadducees?
A. Since they didn’t believe in the resurrection or the happiness of heaven, they
were "Sad, you see!"

PRAY: Dear Father, we are happy today that you have promised us eternal life in
heaven. Thank you that heaven is going to be amazing! In Jesus’ name, amen.
