➤ L E S S O N

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

🎶 K A R A O K E V I D E O : "Sweet Hour of Prayer"

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N

Have a small treat ready to give to children at the beginning of the lesson (a marshmallow, a small piece of candy, a chocolate chip, etc.)

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Tell children that they will each be receiving a delicious treat! Explain that they can choose to eat it now or they can wait until the end of the lesson to eat it. But, if they wait until the end of the lesson, they will receive an extra treat!

Make sure they understand the choice they are making. Place the treats right in front of the children so that they are tempted to eat them.

After each child has a treat, discuss the following questions:

1) Who wishes they could eat this treat right now? (Allow children to raise their hands.)
