Well done!

Oh dear!


#1 Today we learnt about two sisters who Jesus visited. What were the names of the two sisters?

The sisters were called Martha and Mary.


#2 Martha and Mary reacted differently when Jesus kindly sat down to talk to them. Why was Mary’s reaction to Jesus the right one?

All of the above are true. Mary wanted to listen to the gracious words of the Lord Jesus Christ more than anything else. We should all be like Mary and listen to what He has to say to us through reading our Bibles and listening to the Sunday School lessons.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”
John Ch.10 v.27


#3 Why was Martha upset and complaining to Jesus about Mary talking with Him?

Martha wanted to do the everyday chores around the house and perhaps prepare a meal for their important visitor, but Mary was talking to Jesus instead of helping her. This annoyed Martha as she thought Mary should help her with the hard work.


#4 How did Jesus react to Martha’s complaining?

Jesus reacted in a kind and understanding way towards Martha. But He was also firm with her and said that her sister had chosen to do the right thing by listening to Him. Martha should have done what her sister did and listened to Jesus instead of busying herself with household chores.

“The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion: slow to anger, and of great mercy.”
Psalm 145 V.8


#5 Why did Mary do the right thing and listen to Jesus?

Mary made the correct choice to listen to Jesus as He told her how she could have her sins forgiven and receive everlasting life by believing on Him.


#6 How should you react when you learn about Jesus in Sunday school?

Believe what the teachers are telling you and repent of your sins. That is to change the way you live your life so that it is pleasing to God and to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and love Him with all your heart – to become a Christian.

“The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye and believe the gospel”
Mark Ch.1 v.15


#7 What happens if you don’t want to listen to what you are taught in Sunday school and ignore God’s command to repent?

If you die with your sins not having been forgiven by the Lord Jesus Christ, you cannot enter Heaven. You will instead be found guilty of breaking God’s laws and be cast into hell forever by a just and righteous God.

“In  flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;”
2 Thessalonians Ch.1 Vs. 8&9
