But even the hairs of your head are all numbered

Matthew 10:30

Lesson 3

God is All-knowing (Omniscient)


Verse: “But even the hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matthew 10:30).

Focus: God knows all things.

Practical Application: Consider talking about how God knows all about the physical things, the hairs on your head, the number of stars in the sky, etc. Ask the children questions like if they know how many stars are in the sky, how many hairs are on their head. God knows the answers to these questions. Bring a clear container filled with jelly beans (or another item) and ask the children if they know how many jelly beans are in the container.


Verse: “And there is no creature that is not manifest before Him, but all things are naked and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom we are to give our account” (Hebrews 4:13).

Focus: God knows what we do. Others (parents, teachers, etc.) may not see all that we do; therefore they do not know. But God sees everything and therefore knows everything.

Practical Application: Consider asking the children if their parents always know whether or not they took another cookie? Do their parents always know if they took something from someone?” Even if some things may be hidden from others, God still knows.


Verse: “Because if our heart blames us, it is because God is greater than our heart and knows all things” (1 John 3:20).

Focus: God knows our heart. God not only knows the things we do but also knows what we think and what is in our heart.

Practical Application: Consider asking the children if others always know what they speak under their breath. Does anyone know if they really love or hate someone? Does anyone know what they are thinking? God knows everything, even the things in our heart. Whatever we think or feel, God knows us to that extent.
