What do you like best about school? Is it reading? Writing?
Math? Spelling? Recess? Well, when I was in school, I
think my favorite thing was "Show and Tell." I always
looked forward to the days when we had "Show and Tell" because
it gave me the chance to show and tell others about something that was
really important to me.
I have asked several of you to bring
something this morning to show to the other children and tell them
something about it. Who would like to go first? (Depending
on how much time you have, allow several of the children to have their
time of "Show and Tell.") I want to thank those who
shared with us in "Show and Tell" time this morning. I
really enjoyed seeing what you had to show us and I learned a lot from
what you told us. It is really fun to show and tell others about
something that is really important to you, isn't it?
The Bible tells us about a man named John who loved to "show and
tell" others about Jesus. The Bible says that one day John
was standing with a group of people when he saw Jesus coming. He
said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
I have seen him and I tell you that this is the Son of God."
Because John loved to show and tell others about Jesus, many people came
to know Jesus and follow him.
It is important for you and me to
show and tell others about Jesus too. We can show others about
Jesus by doing the things that Jesus taught us to do -- things like
loving one another and being helpful and kind. Then people will
see that we know Jesus and that will give us a chance to tell them about
Jesus. We can tell them about what he has done for us and what he
wants to do for them. Yes, each day we should show and tell others
Dear Father, help us this week to "show and tell" others about you and your love. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
