Object Lesson: Bible helps us correct our course.

4 Sep

 Finish Line

Supplies:Three metal race cars, three straws, checkered flag, masking tape, music

Preparation: Mark off a starting line and finish line with the masking tape.Make the race length short. Experiment beforehand with the cars to find an appropriate distance.

Divide kids into three groups. Choose one leader from each group to be the drag racer.Give the leader a car and a straw. Instruct him to blow through the straw behind the car to move it.

Line up the cars and when flag goes down, start some music and let the cars go. The first one across the finish line wins.

Our life is like a race. We keep running toward the end-the prize of heaven. God has given us His word to help us run the race. It gives us not only instruction but also corrects us when we have done something wrong.

In a drag race, the driver must correct the car by turning the wheel when it is off course. In this same way, God’s word can cause us to turn our lives a bit when we are headed the wrong way.

 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16

 This object lesson is an excerpt from Cruisin in My Father’s Car, an eight week series on the foundations of the Christian faith.
