Needed: Silly putty, a newspaper
Show your silly putty to the students and ask, Do any of you know what this is? What can you do with it?
(Show them how you can copy an image onto it. Let a couple of them try it if you like.)
What do I have to do if I want the silly putty to copy what's on the page? I have to touch the silly putty to the paper, don't I?
Did you know that God wants us to be like silly putty? He wants us to be so close to Him in our hearts, talking about Him and learning about Him and loving Him, that we start to become like Him. Just like the silly putty copies what's on the page, God wants us to be so close to Him in our hearts that we start to copy the way He loves other people and the good things that He does.
(Read Ephesians 4:22-24.)
God wants us to be like Him, and they way we can become like God is to be close to Him so that we can start to copy how He acts and what He does.
Let's pray about that.
Sample prayer: Father God, please help us to be so close to You in our hearts that we start to copy how You act and the good things that You do, just like silly putty copies what's on a paper. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
