Exegetical Aim: A lesson of sharing.

Props: M&M's. You will need: 1) A small package for you to eat. If you cannot eat the whole bag in a single sitting, then slightly open the bag, empty the bag, and place what you can't eat back in.

If you are preaching afterwards, you'll need some water at the pulpit to wash them down. 2) One package for each child present. Hide these packages.

Lesson: Good morning! (response) Hold up a single package of M&M's: I have a package of my favorite candy with me this morning. What are they? (response) Who likes M&M's? (response) Tear open the bag while talking to the children. You do? I do too! Pour the M&M's into your hands and start picking out the greens. My favorite M&M's are the green ones. Hold out all the greens....
