Faith is Like Planting a Seed

In Hebrews 11:1 it says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." When we exercise faith we don't know how things will unfold. We often have to step into the dark and trust. We hope this week's lesson will help your children and families strengthen their faith!

You will need a blindfold and an egg!

Ask for a volunteer. Give the egg to the volunteer, and ask them to hold it. Place the blindfold over the volunteer’s eyes. Now ask the volunteer to extend their arm forward and hold the egg out in front of them. Instruct the other members of the group to watch silently for the rest of the activity.

Ask the volunteer these questions:

1) If you drop this egg, what will happen when it hits the ground? (It will break.)

2) When I count to three, I want you to drop the egg. If you trust me, it won’t break. Do you trust me? (Yes.)

Cup your hands just below the egg, so that you can catch the egg when the volunteer drops the egg. Try to do this slowly and silently, so that the volunteer won’t know your hands are there. Now count to three and instruct the volunteer to drop the egg.

Discuss the following questions after you have completed the activity.
