Serving God

Theme: Serving God
Object: Various utensils used for serving food.
Scripture: Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. Deuteronomy 13:4

 

Start out by explaining each utensil and what it is used for. For example, one utensil is used for pasta(pay attention to the grips around utensil that picks up the pasta), explain a spoon that has holes for draining off water, explain the difference in a fork and a spoon without holes (what are they used for, how are they used?) You may want to include tongs, explain their purpose.

All of these utensils are different in appearance as well as their purposes, but they all have one thing in common. Do you know what it is? They all serve food. We are like these utensils, we all look different on the outside and we all have different talents and ablilities, but we are all here to SERVE God.

Prayer: Dear God, thank you for our talents and abilities. Help us to recognize that we are all different but are all here to serve you. Amen.
