"I Will Lead You Along"
There are times in our lives when God can feel far away. Sometimes we've moved away from him and have not kept a close relationship. Sometimes life knocks us down so hard, we feel alone. But through it all, God has promised that He will lead us along. As we trust Him, we begin to see assurances that He is there, guiding our lives more than we might have ever realized. We hope this lesson will remind you and your children that a loving Heavenly Father is there, aware, and ready to lead you along in your journey.

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N
Hide a series of clues that ultimately leads to an image of Jesus Christ. Each clue should lead to the next clue. The clues should be simple, such as “look in the pantry,” or “look under the bathroom sink.”
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Give the first clue to the children and invite them to follow the clues until they find the image of Jesus Christ.
After the children have found all the clues and the image of Christ, ask the following questions:
1) When you began this activity, did you know where it was going to end? (No.)
2) How did you get to the end? (By following each clue, one at a time.)
3) If you were in a hurry and you tried to skip one of the clues, what would have happened? (It would have taken even longer to get to the end!)
4) What was the best way to find the image of Jesus Christ? (To follow the clues step by step.)
