Sharing Time- The Wise Man and the Foolish Man Credit: sugardoodle.net(Melanie Day)
Theme for the month: Jesus Christ gave me agency and through Jesus Christ provided a way for me to repent and return to Him.
a large cake or casserole pan
a medium sized rock, with a flat surface
a small bowl filled with sand
2 lego houses (to represent a houses)
a pitcher full of water
Put the empty casserole dish on the table so that all the children can see it. Then tip the small bowl with sand in it upside down inside the casserole dish to make something like a small sand island in the dish. (Don't worry if a little crumbles.) Place the medium size rock at the other end of the casserole dish. Then place the "house" on both the sand island and the rock. Pour the water on both of the houses and watch what happens. Remind the children that the house on the rock stayed much better than the house on the sand, just like in Jesus’ story.
Read also Helaman 5:12: "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm• shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."
