FOOD FOR THOUGHT, part 1
You will need:
- Egg Nog
- Cups for each family member
- A small object that you can throw (like a ball)
- A Bible marked at 1 John 4:14
Have each member of your family try a sip of Holiday Egg Nog. Some will like it. Others will probably hate it.
SAY—Whether or not you like Egg Nog is a matter of taste. There’s no right or wrong answer, but in life, right will always be right and wrong will always be wrong.
ASK—Would you believe me if I said I can throw [the object] in the air and it won’t fall back down?
Throw the object in the air.
ASK—Why did it come back? (A law called gravity that says what goes up must come down.)
ASK—A thousand years ago, if someone had thrown this up, what would have happened? (It would have fallen back down.)
ASK—A thousand years from now, if someone threw this up, what would happen? (It would fall back down.)
SAY—God’s law of gravity will never change. In the same way, what is right today was right when God made the world and will be right until the end of time. What’s wrong today has always been wrong and will always be wrong. Right and wrong will NEVER change.
ASK—What is something else that will never change? (God will never change. That there is only one way to heaven will never change, etc. These aren’t matters of opinion. They have always been true and they will always be true.)
KEY—So if anyone ever tells you that right and wrong are a matter of opinion—like whether or not you like Egg Nog—just realize that they’re wrong. Then take the opportunity to tell them about the Savior of the world.
Read 1 John 4:14 from your Bible.
PRAY—Thank God for loving us so much that He sent and Savior.
