If you've been following my postings you'll know that my husband has started teaching our kids object lessons on a weekly basis. Last week he used toothpaste to show them how easily harsh words can come out of our mouths, but how it is impossible to take them back. Feel free to read about it HERE if you missed it.
This weeks lesson started with a raw egg. Each child had a piece of paper marked
and it kept going until 3 minutes. Then he put the egg in a glass bowl in the microwave. While they watched he turned it on and set it for 3 minutes. Each new time frame would come and they would write what happened. Nothing happened until after 1 min. 30 seconds. Then, all of a sudden, BOOM! The egg exploded. My kids about jumped out of their skin! LOL!!
Now came the lesson. The egg represents our hearts and the microwave is sin in our lives. When we sin, often nothing happens. That usually leads to another sin, and another. We think we're ok, and then suddenly, BOOM! We explode and our hearts become a mess!
