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.

Apple70753

Supplies: different kinds of apples, optional: treasure chest

Preparation: Place the apples in a treasure chest or a bag.

Hold up the apples one by one and let the kids guess the type of apple.

Does anyone know what it means to be the apple of someone’s eye? It means that you are very special to them. You are a treasure to them.

Did you ever think that you are an apple of God’s eye? In fact, we are so special to Him that He calls us His children. In 1 John 3:1 it says, “The Father has loved us so much that we are called children of God.”

Give each child an apple. Look them in the eye and say, “You are a treasure to God. You are the apple of His eye.”

Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 17:8

Object Lesson: The Trinity

???? Vol.109 ???????????????

Supplies: apples, knife, plate

Slice the apple in half through the core.

Each apple has three different, distinct parts to it. Can you name the three parts? We have the apple peel, the white flesh and the seeds. Each of these parts has a job that they do. However, they also are all part of one, the apple.

Although God is not actually like an apple, the way the Trinity works together can be understood a bit better by thinking about an apple. God the Father, God the Spirit and God the Son all have different, distinct jobs. But they are all one- they are all God.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the presence and fellowship in the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13: 14 (AMP)
