EN-E-Eli Object Lesson

Don’t compromise!

 

Material

  • 1 orange
  • 1 bowl of water

Steps

  1. Take an orange and ask the children what will happen if you put it in a bowl filled with water (stall or float).
  2. Put the orange in the water and see that it floats.
  3. Take the orange and write moral standards on it: tell the truth, obey the rules, etc. Tell the children that now orange is filled with principles that God teaches us to follow.
  4. Peel the orange: all the principles inscribed on it will disappear.
  5. Ask the group again if the orange will sink or float.
  6. Put the peeled orange in the water and see that it is flowing.
  7. Discuss with children that when you start not caring about God’s principles, remove them like a peel, start making compromises, be nonchalant, turn a blind eye to situations that are not in accord with God , that’s where you start to sink. God’s principles and directives may sometimes seem to us to be prohibitions, but in fact they protect us like a life jacket.
