Items needed: A clear container, water, red food coloring
Ask the children to define sin (anything that doesn’t agree with what God wants for us; when we willingly disobey God, etc.).
Squeeze a drop of red food color into the water and watch it slowly spread.
-How can our sin spread to affect others?
-Are there tiny sins and giant sins? (A sin is a sin!)
-Can you hide a sin?
-How does this tie in with our Bible story today?
This is the perfect time for a gospel presentation and discussion of forgiveness of sin using Romans 3:23 (For all have sinned. . . ) and Romans 6:23 (For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus).
