For another type of "magnet" "attracting others to Jesus" demonstration... (for above lesson)
Added by Neil MacQueen
Have the kids go fishing in your room using a short pole that has a string and magnet attached to it. Have various objects in 'the water' for them to cast and try to catch.
After they've had a bit of fun, begin to "modify" the magnets and objects to illustrate various analogous points:
- things that get in the way of being able to reach out someone
- some heavy things need multiple magnets, multiple poles.
- some people are closer, more ready/willing to be "caught".
- why do some people resist being caught by God?
- baits: what works? what doesn't? ...when trying to win people to God.
