You need a paper sack, a big and bright gift bag, a large and rough rock, and a soft blanket. Ahead of time put the rock in the sack and the blanket in the gift bag.

First bring the rock out and ask the kids if this would be something good to give to someone. Ask if you could hold onto this, if you could sleep with this at night, etc. The rock is like “Hate” and it isn’t something nice to give someone or hold onto. Then bring out the blanket and ask the same questions. The blanket is like love. It can surround you and make you feel warm all over. It is nice to give to someone else (wrap it around someone’s shoulders as you say this) to let them know that you care. Jesus said that we are to love not only the people that we like, but also our enemies and pray for those who try to hurt us. Since Jesus died to save EVERYONE, then I think we should listen to Him!
