Resurrected and Alive

Resurrected and Alive
Hey Kids:
We often hear the analogy of living in darkness as being a life without Christ and without purpose.
Let’s try an experiment to see how darkness affects seeds and plants.
Place a damp paper towel in a plastic sandwich bag.
Place 2 or 3 seeds on the towel and close the bag.
Tape it in a sunny window.
You have created a mini greenhouse.
Now do the same with a second bag only this time place the bag with the seeds in a dark place, maybe under a cabinet.
Keep a daily journal noting the changes occurring in each bag.
How are they the same/different?
How do you think a life lived in darkness, without Christ, is the same/different from a life lived with Christ at the center?
Discuss your results with your parents and other kids.
Do you know someone who needs the light of Jesus to shine in their lives?
