FOOD FOR THOUGHT, part 2
Provide a bite of fruit cake to each member of your family.
SAY—Just like the Egg Nog, fruit cake is a matter of taste. Some people love it, but some people think it tastes disgusting.
ASK—What else can you think of that is disgusting? (Toilet water, Sumo wrestler sweat, body odor, etc.)
ASK—Do you think lying is disgusting?
ASK—What about cheating? Or stealing? Or saying bad words?
SAY—Sin is anything wrong you do and all sin is disgusting to God. Everything sin has and gives is the opposite of God.
ASK—How would you describe God?
SAY—Sin is the opposite of God. God is love—Sin creates hate; God gives peace—Sin destroys peace; God leads you to do right—Sin makes you a slave to doing wrong; God takes care of you—Sin will always hurt you. But God loves you so much, that even though we’ve all done wrong things, He sent Jesus to die to make a way to take your sins away. That’s what Christmas is all about.
