Doug Wolter posted a video on his blog demonstrating the “circle of blessing” concept. He was using this as part of a sermon on the 5th commandment. I love the way he brings the whole point back to the Gospel.
This is something you could teach in your children’s ministry, but the video would be helpful in teaching parents as well.
- Circle of about 3ft diameter. I used a piece of rope attached to the floor with masking tape. A large hula-hoop would also work.
- Squirt-gun or plastic spray bottle. You could use a sports whistle to add optional emphasis.
Main Idea: The Bible promises protection for those who honor their parents. This concept can be demonstrated as a circle of blessing.
Scripture Reference: Ephesians 6:1-3 or Exodus 20:12
If you enjoyed this, be sure to check out our obey your parents Bible lesson that teaches this concept of the circle of blessing. You can print off several story scripts for acting out this object lesson.
