Who made you?
A. God made me
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
You formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
You may take your blocks and stack them up to make a tall tower. You may draw a picture with your markers and put it on your refrigerator door. These are your creations and they are wonderful things.
But who made you? God did! You are one of his wonderful creations. Before the beginning of time, God planned to create you and all your family. Then, at just the right time, he made you. He made your body and gave you a soul that will live forever. Deep within your mommy’s tummy he fashioned you together and made you into the person you are today.
I hope this catechism question helps you see how special you are! For the Lord didn’t make just anyone, he made you. He took special care to make you just the way you are. What’s more, there’s no one in the world like you. You are God’s unique creation. That makes you very special! Whenever you get sad, just remember this happy thought: God made me!
Also remember that you belong to God. The tower you built with your blocks is yours. So is the picture you drew. You created it, and it belongs to you.
In the same way, you belong to God. You are his special treasure. Don’t ever forget that he is your creator God, and you are his special creation.
Things to discuss
What are things that are unique about you? (Hint: personality traits, physical characteristics, certain looks you make or talents you have, clothes you wear, styles, games you like, etc.)
Things to do
With an ink pad or marker, color your children’s fingers. Have them put their finger prints on a sheet of paper. Talk about how are they different and how are they the same. Explain how God made each person’s print unique.
Extra: Make each print into the head of a stick figure. Decorate it with your child’s specific features, i.e. hair, ears, eyes, etc.
Things to sing
God made me; God made me
In my Bible book it says that God made me.
