Topic: Following God
Here is an object lesson to demonstrate how we need to follow God and watch where we step!
What You’ll Need:
- 12 eggs
- 1 tarp
- 2 blindfolds
- Paper towels
- 2 contestants
- Place the tarp on the floor in front of the class.
- Place eggs all around the floor on the tarp.
- Place blindfolds on two contestants.
1.The first contestant walks across the tarp without any assistance. (Teacher can even deliberately place an egg on the floor in their path to make sure they step on one.)
2. The second contestant walks across the tarp with the teacher giving verbal assistance of where to step.
Life is full of all kinds of disasters in front of us. God loves and cares about us very much and has made a way for us to bypass the messes laid before us. No one is exempt from bad things happening to them. Things happen to all of us, but we can avoid a lot of messy situations if we follow God and watch where we step.
When we try to go on our own and do what we want, then it can become very messy. But as you see, when we follow God and take time to listen, we will bypass and sometimes go around obstacles in front of us.
