Make this Yummy Treat during
your Fall Festival
(Halloween Tract, below!)
Object Lesson: Have you ever
seen a scarecrow? (You might show pictures.) Farmers use them in their fields. Do you know why? To scare away crows and
other kinds of birds that eat their crops. Wouldn't it be great if we could
use scarecrows to scare away frightening things in our lives?
What are some
things that scare you? (Allow for discussion).
We can't use scarecrows to
scare away frightening things, but we do have someone who has
promised to be with us, to protect us, and to never leave us. We have Jesus,
our Savior and Forever Friend! Listen to these promises from God's Word, "The
LORD is with me; I will not be afraid" (Psalm 118:6); "You
are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble" (Psalm
32:7); "I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Joshua
1:5); and "For in the day of trouble he
will keep me safe . . . " (Psalm 27:5).
(Spend some time saying and
repeating these verses. It's also helpful to make up hand motions to
make them memorable.)
