Overview of Psalm 23 Sunday School lessons:

For this fun, interactive Psalm 23 Sunday School lesson series there are many concepts to help young children begin a relationship with their Lord. Soft, cuddly-looking Marshmallow the Lamb is the character (printable illustrated pictures) used in each weeks' story. Children, as well as adults, can relate well to him because he always seems to be getting in trouble. He needs lots of help from his shepherd. Each week he learns just how much he needs his shepherd, and he learns more about his shepherd's character. Just a few of the many concepts they will learn in this series include: My shepherd loves me so much and gives me everything I need; My shepherd is the best friend anyone could ever have!; Jesus is my best friend!; My shepherd loves spending time with me; When I follow my shepherd, he shows me the right way to go; No matter how much I grow up, I'll always need my shepherd!; My shepherd carries me close to his heart!; I am precious to my shepherd!; My shepherd loves me always - that's forever! The printable lift-the-flap pictures, stickers and other fun craft pages are also used as story pages during the lesson to keep children's interest high. There are also lots of colorful, illustrated printable story pictures to decorate the room, and use during story time. For each weeks' activities in this series, there is a pretend play activity, an action rhyme or song with motions, and a game or second activity, as well as plenty of sheep and shepherd crafts, Circle Talk Time and sample prayer.

Bible Memory Verse: Psalm 23:5

INTRO: Today we have another story about the kind shepherd and his little sheep named Marshmallow. As you know from the last few weeks, Marshmallow is really starting to depend on his shepherd and trust him. They have a great friendship because they spend lots of time together. But Marshmallow still has some things to learn. Let's listen to the story to see what happens.

(1) This is Marshmallow the lamb. Marshmallow was having lunch with his friends. His friends were the sheep from the other pasture. They had a different shepherd. While they were eating, Marshmallow started telling the other sheep all about his shepherd. (2) He told them how kind his shepherd was. He also told them what a special friendship he and his shepherd had. He told them about the time his shepherd helped him when he fell. He even told them about the time his shepherd saved him from the bear! Well, the other sheep were getting mad at him. They didn't like what he was saying because they didn't have a kind shepherd. Their shepherd was, well, kind of mean. Their shepherd didn't really care about them at all. (3) But Marshmallow just kept talking about his shepherd because he was so thankful for him. He told them stories of how much fun he and his shepherd had talking and playing together every day. By now the other sheep were really jealous. They finally had enough of his talk! They covered their ears and wouldn't listen to him anymore. Then they told him to leave the table!

(4) Well, Marshmallow didn't want to stay where he was not wanted. So he got up from the table and walked away. Marshmallow felt really sad. He wondered where his shepherd was. He began to think, "Why didn't my shepherd protect me from those mean sheep? Then Marshmallow started to cry. ....Just a moment later, the shepherd came by. He noticed that Marshmallow did not look very happy. He asked Marshmallow why he was crying. It made the shepherd very sad to see his precious little lamb so upset.

Marshmallow told his shepherd the whole story, "Well, I was eating happily with my friends, and I was telling them all about how kind you are, and what a great friendship we have and how much fun we have together. Then they got mad at me and made me leave the table! (5) A tear rolled down the shepherd's cheek. He felt really bad for Marshmallow. He hated to see his little lamb upset. Marshmallow reached up and wiped his shepherd's tear away. After all, he had seen his shepherd do that for him lots of times before when he was crying. (6) His shepherd put his arms around Marshmallow and whispered in his ear. "I'm so sorry they were mean to you. I know it hurts a lot. It makes me sad to know that you are sad. But, sometimes others won't like it that we are good friends. They will be jealous. And, they will not like you since you love me. But, you know what? I have a secret! I have been making something special for you! Come and see! (7) So, Marshmallow took his shepherd's hand and followed him to the meadow. Marshmallow was excited. He couldn't wait to see what the special surprise was!

(8) Once they got to the meadow, his shepherd picked him up and sat him in the very best highchair. He tied a bib around his neck. The bib had some words on it. It said, " My Special Little Sheep". That made Marshmallow feel really special. Then Marshmallow saw his shepherd bringing a big silver plate. Something sure did smell good! What was it? Well, his shepherd took off the lid to the plate. It was tender juicy meat with yummy barbecue sauce! His shepherd also brought delicious home-made bread, colorful vegetables, and a chocolate almond smoothie for dessert! Marshmallow couldn't believe it! He never had food that tasted this good before! He was enjoying his dinner so much that all he could do was sit there and giggle while he looked at his shepherd. This was better than any lunch with his friends! Marshmallow was enjoying himself so much that he forgot all about how mean his friends had been. He laughed and giggled as he slurped up his last drop of chocolate almond smoothie. (Make a slur-r-r-p sound). By now he was so full of joy that he couldn't hold still. So his shepherd took him out of his highchair and took off his bib. Now he put on a special tee shirt on him. His tee shirt also said, "My Special Little Sheep". Now Marshmallow knew deep down that his shepherd loved him very, very much. He realized that he didn't have to feel so bad when others were mean to him. His shepherd still cared even though he had gone through a bad day. Now he understood better. His shepherd was there for him all along; He was just waiting for the right time to lift him up. And now his shepherd was pouring out so many blessings on him! How Marshmallow loved his shepherd! "I love you so much! I want to stay with you forever!", Marshmallow said. "And, you can stay with me forever!", said his shepherd. Then Marshmallow gave his shepherd a big hug and they spent the rest of the day talking and laughing and playing together. THE END.

CIRCLE TIME: (What does this mean for me?)

Just like Marshmallow and his shepherd had a special friendship, we can share a special friendship with Jesus, our shepherd, too. We can stay close to our shepherd by spending time with him. How do we spend time with him? By praying or by listening to his words from the Bible. Did you know that you are so precious to Jesus that he loves to be with you all of the time...during good times, and even when bad things happen. When something bad does happen to you, he loves to comfort you and remind you of God's promises, just like when the shepherd was whispering to Marshmallow. Even though it hurts when other people are mean to you, Jesus will give you joy at the right time. That means he makes you happy on the inside.

Jesus is the friend we can really depend on. He is always your friend even if all of your other friends leave you. So, even if you feel all alone and like your shepherd is not there, just call out to him. You will find that he was really there all along. And, he will lift you up at the right time. He will give you more joy than you can handle. And, he has so many other blessings to pour out on you too! --Things like love and forgiveness. And, you will find that when you give some love away to somebody else, he will give you even more! Isn't that wonderful? That means that our shepherd's love never runs out! There's always more than enough for everybody! THE END.

Transition: Sample Prayer (This is just a sample. Pray as you are God leads you). Now we have a prayer we can say. Let's bow our heads, close our eyes and fold our hands. I'll say a prayer first and then anyone else who wants to pray can pray after me. (After saying your prayer, give the children time to say a prayer of their own.)

Dear God,

Thank you for loving me so much!

Thank you being with me,

even when I don't feel like you are.

Thank you for being with me,

cont'd:

in the good times and bad times.

Thank you for telling me

how special I am to you.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
