"How Oft Will I Gather You?"
The safety and protection of our Savior Jesus Christ is always available. Christ himself said "O ye house of Israel whom I have spared, how oft will I gather you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, if ye will repent and return unto me with full purpose of heart." We are never too far gone to be out of his safety and reach. He will continue to beckon to us to come and find safety under His wings!

You will need a bowl of water, some dish soap, and some pepper.
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Invite the children to gather around the bowl of water. Sprinkle some pepper all over the surface of the water. Tell children that the Pepper represents the people of the Earth. Next, invite one of the children to wipe a small amount of dish soap on the tip of their finger. Tell them that their finger represents Jesus Christ, then invite them to touch the surface of the water with their finger to see what will happen. (The pepper will quickly scatter to the edges of the bowl.)
After you complete the activity, discuss the following questions:
1) How did you feel when you watched the “people” in the bowl go away from Jesus Christ?
