Craft Ideas for Micah 6: Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

What does God want from us? Money? Efforts? Talents? The truth is that God loves us and gives us all we could need. There is nothing He demands or that we could pay Him, except for our love and faith. In the book of the prophet Micah, we are reminded that God wants us to “act justly, love kindness (or mercy), and walk humbly with our God.” These crafts encourage children to offer unto God their hearts and attitudes. A handprint poster features the words of Micah 6:8, and a homemade basket provides a way of collecting service ideas as well as dollars and coins.
