UNCLE BERYL’S SUNDAY SCHOOL –
FAITHFULNESS IN CHURCH
RUSTY (All six children enter talking) Hey, Piper! What’s so important about
going to Sunday school?
PIPER Why do you ask, Rusty?
RUSTY Well, I don’t get to do anything. All I ever get to do is sit, sing and
listen. I’d like to do more than that!
PIPER That’s about all I ever do!
RUSTY How come you always get to pass the offering plate and Sandy gets
PIPER That’s because I’m older and have been in this class longer than you.
You’ll have things to do when you get older. Besides, would you
wanna sing by yourself in front of everyone in this class?
RUSTY Well, . . . I . . .
PIPER Here comes dad now. (Beryl enters) Why don’t you ask him about it?
BERYL Good morning, boys and girls. It looks like everyone is here today!
RUSTY Dad, why is it so important for us to go to Sunday school, even when
there’s nothing to do?
BERYL That’s a good question, Rusty! I’m glad you asked that. Let’s have
that as our lesson for today. Open your Bibles to Hebrews 10:24 and
we’ll see what God’s Word has to say. Rusty, why don’t you read
verses 24 and 25?
RUSTY O.K., Dad! “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and
good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the
manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more,
as ye see the day approaching.”
BERYL You see! We need to help and teach each other to love and to do good
works. We need to encourage others to serve the Lord so that they can
encourage others in the same way.
RUSTY O.K., I understand that, but what other reasons are there?
BERYL I was getting to that! It’s fun and enjoyable to do things that help other
people to enjoy a life with Jesus. When we get together, we have what
we call “fellowship.”
RUSTY Is it like what we do after church, like having a church picnic and when
we play ball together?
BERYL That’s right! We also need to come together to worship the Lord and
quietly listen to God’s Word.
SANDY Singing songs about Jesus is one way we can worship!
BERYL Very good, Sandy! I can tell that you’ve been a good listener. And you
know, by being a good listener, we can set an example for others to
follow. There’s one more verse that I’d like to share, it’s Psalms 133:1.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together
in unity!” Can someone tell me what that means?
SANDY It’s talking about those who are brothers and sisters in Christ, and how
nice it is when they’re together. Since we all have Jesus in common, we
can all worship Him together.
BERYL That’s right! We can enjoy being with each other, because we all
believe the same. Say, it’s time for refreshments, everyone!
RUSTY Oh, boy! I really like to fellowship like this, Dad!
BERYL I do, too, Rusty! I do, too! (all say good byes and exit)
