This week’s lesson is taken from Genesis 18:16-19:29 and covers the account of Sodom and Gomorrah.
I’d be the first to admit this is one of those more difficult passage to teach younger children, but in it we are remind of
• the seriousness of sin,
• the danger of sin
• and God’s grace.
As these lessons are aimed at under 5s, I would recommend reading Genesis 18:16-19:1 and retelling the remained of the story in your own words, relative to the age of your child. Saddleback kids have a useful video linked below

Rather than covering the sexual depravity of Sodom focus on that they were very wicked. I will use Ezekiel 16:49 “This was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were proud. They had plenty of food. They lived in great comfort. But she did not help the poor and needy.” As it teaches about being proud and not helping others in need.
Introducing the story
Before you read this week’s passage, give a recap of Abraham and Lot separating, and an update to where we are in this week’s reading. Explain that Lot started off going near to Sodom and then ended up right in the middle of the city.
Abraham prayed to God. God listens to our prayers. We are called to pray for others in need.
God is gracious and rescued Lot and his family from an evil place.
God calls us to run away for sin and bad things. We should leave them behind and not look back.
