Science Experiments That Teach Bible Truth, Part 2

Science Experiments That Teach Bible Truth, Part 2

I was standing on stage in front of a large group of children with five raw eggs balanced on cardboard cylinders. The cardboard cylinders were on top of a tray held up by five glasses. As I smiled confidently at the children, my heart was racing. If I made a mistake, I was about to drop raw eggs all over the stage in front of everyone. I had practiced and was “fairly” certain that this object lesson would work. I said a prayer as I forcefully smacked the tray holding the eggs. All five eggs fell into the glasses, and I breathed a sign of relief as the children erupted into cheers.

This object lesson was a success, but I haven’t always been so fortunate. There have been times when things just didn’t work even after extensive practice. The failures have taught me an important lesson. Always be ready to use the failure in your sermon, as well as, the success. Either way, the children will be able to engage with the Bible point. (You can find the egg object lesson and its application in the Ideas You Can Use section.)
