Yesterday, Today and Forever: A Fun Bible Activity for Preschoolers

It’s never too early to teach our children that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. His character has always been true and right according to Hebrews 13:8. Try sharing this fun Bible activity to help  your preschoolers learn this truth.

“Yesterday, Today and Forever” is a fun Bible activity based on Hebrews 13:8, which says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” We all have our good days when our character is reflecting Jesus. But we also have our bad days, when we give in to doing that which is displeasing to the Father. But we can be very thankful that Jesus never changes. He has, does and always will exhibit the truth of His Word.

Here are 9 quick stories that you can share with your preschoolers to help them learn the truth of Hebrews 13:8. As you read through the stories, you will notice that they showcase the “Fruit of the Spirit.” These stories can be an opportunity for you as a parent or teacher to talk about the kind of character that Jesus wants us to have through the power of His Holy Spirit.




I have also provided you with some very basic pictures to help engage your children while sharing “Yesterday, Today and Forever.”
