Sermon Illustrations- Sticker Compliment Game


My husband can come up with some of the best illustrations for church and this particular one has been one of my favorites.   This was his last sermon in his series "Make me Love."


As you can see we have star stickers and circle stickers.  First he asked us to think of things we didn't like about us or things God needed to change in us and use the white stickers.   Then he asked us to use the star stickers for things we did like.   Then we had to go around and do that for others.   Obviously most people hand out the star compliments.   It felt really nice to hear some nice things about myself but it was fun to see others get excited when a compliment was given to them.  


Along with that activity he also read the book, "You Are Special" by Max Lucado.   It was adorable! It is a great story that explains the above illustration!    

Overall we have to remember we are made in the image of Christ!  Many of us though have been deformed- corrupted by sin and this world and are covered in dots.   To get rid of the dots we must get rid of the distractions of this worlds and rely on more Daddy God time.   

Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship.   Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.   Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
