1) Cain & Abel Food Devotion

Just a thought....... have 2 equally large OPAQUE containers........ Label them A & B
In container A, put small individually wrapped candies
In Container B, put something most kids WON'T eat (i.e. - spinach, etc.)

Offer kids a choice from the containers......Explain to them beforehand that if they choose from Container A, 
they may only have ONE. But if they choose from container B, they may have UNLIMITED amounts......
After each child has stated their choice, reveal the contents of both, discussing WHY container B SEEMED so pleasing BEFORE it's contents were revealed and why A is a MORE pleasing choice now.....and any other pertinent questions that arise.....then allow children to change their snack option if they so choose.....

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye have eternal life........" John 5:39
