Apple Object Lesson

Supplies: apple

Did you know that the Bible talks about apples? (Show the apple.) In Psalms 17:8, it says, “Keep me as the apple of your eye, hide me in the shadow of your wings.” David was praying because he had enemies that were attacking him. He knew that God was watching over him.

What does it mean to be the apple of someone’s eye? (Give kids a chance to answer.)

Let’s look at each other’s eyes. Turn to the person next to you and look in their eye. The eyeball is also called the globe of the eye. It has the iris that is the colored part, the white and the black pupil. Together the eyeball is round or apple shaped. If you look closely in each other’s eyes you can see a picture of yourself.

When we are the apple of someone’s eye, that means that we are seen by them. Not only are we seen but also the eye is known to have great value so it also means that we are precious to them, important to them and they are watching over us.

We are the apple of God’s eye. Each one of us is important to him. Precious to him. And he is watching over us.

Christmas Object Lesson: Light of the World

10 Dec

Day 10: 25 Days of Christmas Ideas.

Glow in the Dark NYE (11 of 12) 

Scripture: Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  John 8:12

Supplies: glow in dark stick or bracelet (optional), Christmas lights

Turn off the lights. Talk about how dark it is. Give out the glow in the dark items and break them so they glow. (Or turn on the Christmas lights.)

Read John 8:12. What difference does the light make in the dark? One of the names for Jesus is Light of the World. He came to earth to be a Light in the darkness of sin. When we look at Christmas lights, the lights can remind us of Jesus and His name, Light of the World.

Option for families: Drive around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights.
