Children’s Sermon on Psalm 10 – “Why Did You Do That?”

Children’s Sermon on Psalm 10 – “Why Did You Do That?”

Use this children’s sermon about the Judgment of God to help children understand that God sees everything and they will have to give an account to Him.

Scripture: Psalm 10


Needed: a parent of a child in the group


Children’s Sermon: Call the parent up and ask their child, Do you ever get in trouble at home? (Yes.)


When you get in trouble, does your parent ever ask, “Why did you do that?”


Do you like it when they ask you why you did what you did?


How many of you other children like it when your parents ask you, “Why did you do that?”


Sometimes, your parents don’t know the bad thing you did. They never find out. But do you know who does know what you did?


You know and God knows. Our psalm today says…


(Read Psalm 10:15, quoted here in the NIV.)


“call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.”


That means that if other people never find out what we did, God still knows, and when we die and go to face Him, He will ask each of us to give an account of what we did while we were alive (2 Corinthians 5:10). Do you want God to ask you, “Why did you do what you did?”


I don’t want God to ask me about all the wrong things I did. I’m afraid of God asking me about some things. I know that God forgives me because Jesus already took the punishment for my sins, but I also believe that God will still show me all my sins and ask me about them.


I say this to help you remember that God does see everything, and He will ask you about what you’ve done, so hopefully, that will make you want to not do as many bad things.


Closing Prayer: Lord, You are God. You see everything, and one day, we will all have to face You. We thank You that in Jesus, You forgive us for all of our sins, but we also pray that You’ll help us not to sin so that we don’t have as much to answer for. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
