Who’s THE BEST at Musical statues?
A statue does NOT move! Show off your best moves while the music plays but when it stops – FREEZE! You are now a statue! The musical director must then check if all statues are really statues by trying to make them move…
The idea that what we think is best doesn’t always match up to what God thinks is best is a difficult one to understand and important for addressing questions such as “Why didn’t God heal…?” or “Why doesn’t God answer my prayer for…?”
Use the questions below to get the kids thinking and sharing:
- Can you remember a time when you asked God for something and you didn’t get it? How did you feel? What did you think of God?
- How do you think God feels when things don’t turn out the way you hoped?
- Why doesn’t God always do what we want Him to do?
1. An image of the story…
Fire is a lot of fun to craft – Use red, orange and yellow, and four figures to create an image of Shadrach Meshach and Abednego in the furnace with their mystery life saver! A black background is very effective; materials are limited only by your imagination and what you have lying around at home.
2. EVEN IF…
To say EVEN IF is to have the best kind of trust in God. What are some EVEN IF’S that have challenged our trust in God?
- Kids can recall the EVEN IF’S that have challenged the people we have looked at so far.
- What about Jesus? What were some of His EVEN IF’s?
- What about us? What are some of our EVEN IF’s?

This story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego is found in Daniel Chapter 3.
A LITTLE BIT EXTRA
This is a FILMED version of the story – effective for bringing the story to life; it is not an animation and so perhaps suitable for older children only. Watch at your own discretion.
This is the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in song theatre form – catchy, fun and clever!
Silly Scriptures: Fiery Furnace
What will you do when you are put to the test?
Will you obey God or bow down like the rest?
He won’t forsake you and He will be your best friend
He’s proven faithful time and time again!
