Seth. after God made the world, and Adam and Eve sinned, Seth was born. Seth was the son of Adam and Eve. He was made in the image of Adam whereas Adam had been made in the image of God. man is made in the image of God, yet at the same time we now like Seth are born with a marred image due to sin. we all have a sin nature. the symbol for this would be a mirror. * ask your kids in what ways can they reflect time image of God.
Noah – how sin was so bad God destroyed the whole earth, but out of compassion for a righteous man named Noah God instructed an ark to be built and spared Noah and his family. A rainbow was given as a promise God would never flood the earth again. use an ornament or decoration of an ark or a rainbow. * ask kids what promises God has made to us, and name a promise the Lord has kept.
