I like the idea of this art lesson, but I need help understanding part of it. It says that the items (such as lollipops and candles) were labeled by the kids with the explanation and Bible verse. How? Any clever ideas?
Member Fulghum04 posted this unique idea. We have adapted and retitled it:
Gifts FOR the Good Samaritan
It focuses on things Samaritans need to help, and to persevere. These items were labeled by the kids, and packed in a box that was decorated by the kids and given to others in the congregation.
A BANDAID to remind you to help heal all wounds.
He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.

A LOLLIPOP to remember that God is Good, even in the midst of trouble.

A CRAYON for coloring your world a little brighter when problems seem great. Or to draw yourself a door whenever you feel you're at a dead end.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.

I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
