Using our blessings to help others (PS/A)

Subject: Using our Blessings to Help Others

Scripture: Roman 15: ” … be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus, that ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God … ”

Discussion:

In the scripture today, we find the phrase “one mind and one mouth.” These are just two of the God-given blessings that most of us have and can use to glorify or honor God. We also have our hands, our legs, our eyes, our ears and even our hearts.

On this second Sunday of Advent, let’s think about how we can use our human body blessings to prepare for Christmas and glorify the Lord.

Puppet Script:

Fred

Good morning Jane.

Jane

Good morning Fred.

Fred

You know today is the second Sunday of Advent.

Jane

I know that, but I am surprised that you know that! 

Fred

Well, I didn’t know that until yesterday. My mom told me.

Jane

I see.

Fred

I was listening to the song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Do you know that song? It goes like this (sings) “You better watch out, you better not cry …”

Jane

OK Fred, that’s enough! I know the song!

Fred

Well, my mom said that Advent is like that song. It’s like Jesus is coming to town on Christmas too, so I better watch out and I better be good!

Jane

Well, Jesus isn’t really coming to town. We just celebrate his birth a long time ago on Christmas day.

Fred

I know, but mom says Jesus is here with us in spirit but not in the body.  And she says that the best Christmas present we can give Jesus is to be good to other people, like Jesus was.

Jane

Last Sunday, in our Church school, the teacher played a neat Advent game with us.

Fred

Oh yea, what was it?

Jane

Well, he brought in this human body made out of cardboard. And it was cut into pieces like a puzzle. He gave each one of us a puzzle piece, like a hand or an ear and asked us how we could use that part of the body to help another person. Then we all put the puzzle back together again.

Fred

Cool.

Activity:

Make a human body out of cardboard. Cut it into pieces like a puzzle. Give each student(s) a puzzle piece, like a hand or an ear. Ask each student how he or she could use that part of the body to help another person. When finished, have the students put the puzzle back together again.
