Fruitfulness, Godliness, Truth, Values
One rotten banana
Approximately 5 minutes
A good banana
looks like this!
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
You will show the children the bad banana first and get their reaction. Then you will display the good banana and get a different reaction. This Object Talk will help the children know the difference between producing good fruit and bad fruit in their daily walk with Christ.
WHAT YOU WILL SAY:
(Show everyone the bad rotten banana.) Who would like to eat this banana? Why would you choose not to eat it? How can you tell this banana will not taste very good? (Allow for answers.)
(Now show everyone the good banana.) Now who would like to eat this banana? Why would you choose to eat it? How can you tell this banana will taste good? (Allow for answers.)
Our lives are like one of these two pieces of fruit. Read Matthew 7:17-20 to the class. People will know who we are by the type of fruit we produce. What kind of fruit do you want to produce? Will the fruit of your life be good, like this good banana, or not so good, like this rotten banana?
