The Kingdom Is Divided

Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more

When king Solomon disobeyed, the whole nation had to pay the price!

Key Points:

  • When Solomon got older, he started worshiping false gods. 1 Kings 11:4
  • God told Solomon he would tear away his kingdom from him.
  • When Solomon died, his son only got to rule one tribe. 1 Kings 11:11-13
  • When you disobey God, you make things harder on everyone!

Memory Verse:

Ephesians 6:3 If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.”

Talk About It
  1. What’s your favorite part of the video? What’s one thing you learned from it?
  2. Share about a time you were punished because of what someone else did. How did that feel to you?
  3. What did Solomon start doing that made God mad? Why do you think Solomon started to ignore God?
  4. Who was punished for Solomon’s disobedience? How many tribes did his son get to rule?
  5. Read 2 Timothy 3:1-4. Make a list of all the ways people can rebel against God.  How can we avoid making these mistakes?
  6. How will you apply this lesson to your life this week?

This is part of the Bible Storyline series.
