- SAY: “I have something that will help us remember the Bible story we heard today. First, we need to make Story Memory Match cards. Everyone needs ten cards. (Give each child ten cards.) Our first story picture is Deborah. (Hold up the Deborah card.) Deborah was a judge and helped God’s people know the right thing to do. I will give you two Deborah cards. Now you have two Deborah Story Memory Match cards. Our next story picture is a tree. (Hold up the tree card.) Deborah would stand under a tree so people would know where she was when they needed her help. I will give you two tree cards. Now you have two tree Story Memory Match cards. Our next story picture is a group of people. (Hold up the people card.) The people would go see Deborah at the tree when they needed help with their hard questions. I will give you two people cards. Now you have two people Story Memory Match cards. We’re almost done! Our next story picture is an ear. (Hold up the ear card.) What do we do with our ears? (Pause.) Yes, we listen with our ears.

Now you have all of your Story Memory Match cards! That means we can play Story Memory Match together! God is with us, helping us be wise just like He was with Deborah. So when I ask, ‘Who is always with you?’, you say [Bottom Line] ‘God is always with me.’ Who is always with you? [Bottom Line] God is always with me! Yes, He is!
