Object Lesson

(Hold the boomerang up.)

Does anyone know what this is? (Wait for responses.) That’s right, it’s a boomerang. Do any of you know how to use one? What does a boomerang do?┬áIf you know how to throw it the proper way it will fly far away from you and then it will turn around and fly back at you, hover over your head and then fall down so you can catch it! That’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Matthew 7:12 says that we should treat each other the way we want to be treated. We call that the Golden Rule. Our actions are a lot like this boomerang. If we throw out bad actions and treat people badly what do you think will return to us? (Wait for responses.) That’s right, bad things!

However, if we throw out good actions and treat people with love and respect what do you think will return to us? (Wait for a response.) That’s correct! We will get good things in return!

What kind of things do you want to come into your life? Good things or bad things? Since we all want good things then we need to make sure that the actions that we send out are good and uplifting as well.
