Letting Go

I was teaching my class about how we sometimes have our lives so full of trash or other things that we can’t receive what God has for us, and that what God has is so much better. I brought in some spaghetti sticks (you could use dry beans or something like that) let all the kids taste a spaghetti stick or a bean. Then have them fill their hands with the sticks or beans. Show them a bag of M&M’s or other candy and tell them to try to get some out of the bag without dropping the sticks or beans. You can even stick an M&M in their mouth and tell them, “Isn’t that much better than what you have? This is what God has for you.” Then they will see they have to put down the things that they have and be more ready and capable of taking the good that God has!
