5) Cain & Abel Food Devotion?
Sunday school with rotations. I have the food rotation and am looking for any snacks or food recipes that would correlate with the story of Cain & Abel. Do you have any suggestions?
SSTN: The main point with Cain & Abel concerns the gift they brought
to God--one was acceptable the other not. How could a food devotion portray,
explain or reinforce this truth of acceptable and unacceptable? You could mix
Kool-Aid with salt and then sugar to teach the following: If we use the wrong
ingredients in a recipe, maybe by using salt when we should have used sugar,
it will taste terrible--it is unacceptable (allow kids to mix their own and
taste it. You might even let them think you're using sugar when you're
actually using salt). But if we follow the instructions, by adding sugar, in
the the right amount, it will taste great--it is acceptable (mix and taste).
When we follow God's ways, he makes us acceptable to him. But when we make up
our own way--not following God's instructions--we are not acceptable to
