|Always trust in the Lord. This Object Talk will show the kids how God keeps us safe in miraculous ways.|
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch of pepper
Small cup saucer
Approximately 5 minutes
Trusting God, Worry
Grades 1-6 (Ages 6-12)
What you will do:
You will pour a small mound of salt (about 1/4 of a teaspoon), representing God's people into the middle of the saucer. Then you will drop a very small amount of pepper over the mound of salt. The pepper represents harm or evil in the world. Next, you will rub a plastic spoon vigorously over a piece of clothing to create static electricity. Then, you will wave the spoon over the mound, and the pepper will attach itself to the spoon, thus being removed from God's people..
What you will say:
Today, I will show you how we can always trust in our Lord to protect us, even when circumstances seem hopeless. This saucer represents the world, which we all live in. I am going to take some salt and place it on the world. This salt represents God's people. Now as we know the world is full of danger and evil. Let me take some of this pepper, and put it on top of the salt. This pepper represents danger, and it is right on top of God's people.
How can we remove this danger? (Allow for responses and explain how most suggestions would be hopeless or take forever.)
It may seem impossible to us, but God can do miraculous things. Let me show you. This spoon represents our loving God. (Take the spoon and rub it to create static electricity, and then lift off the pepper.)
You see, sometimes we are faced with danger and have no clue how to escape. God is always there for us. He can keep us safe no matter what.
