Pride Bubble

Pride object lesson

Key Verse

Proverbs 16:18

Additional Verses

Proverbs 11:2; Galatians 6:3; James 4:6

Materials Needed

  • Bubble gum. You can give everyone a piece if you want. (You could also use bubbles or a balloon for a similar effect).

Object Lesson

(Take out a piece of bubble gum and put it in your mouth and begin to chew it. You could also get a volunteer if you wanted to.)

Does anyone here like bubble gum? What is your favorite kind? (Wait for responses.) Do you know how to blow a bubble? Did you know that some people can blow huge bubbles!

I can’t blow a really big bubble, but I will show you how big of a bubble I can blow. (Blow the bubble until it pops.)

Did you know that some people are just like this bubble? They get really puffed up. Do you know what it means when you are puffed up? You are full of yourself or you are prideful.

Being proud means that you think that you are more important that others. God does not like it at all when we are full of pride.

Do you know what happens when we get full of pride? In Proverbs 16:18 it says that pride comes before destruction. That is just like a bubble gum bubble. It gets puffed up as it becomes more and more proud and then finally…POP! It is totally destroyed.

God’s Word tells us that pride will lead us to destruction. Let us put other people and God before ourselves. Let us not boast about things that we have. Let’s make sure that we don’t have a big ego.

Let us walk with humility before our God.

Control Your Tongue

bit and bridle

Key Verse

James 1:26

Additional Verses

James 3:3-5; Psalm 39:1; Proverbs 18:21; Philippians 4:8

Materials Needed

  • Horse bit and bridle.

Object Lesson

(Hold up the bit and bridle.)

Do any of you know what this is? (Wait for a response.) This is a bridle for a horse, and this metal piece here is the bit. Do you know where the bit goes? It goes in the horse’s mouth! Then you hold on to the reigns and when you pull on one side it causes the bit to tug on one side of the horse’s mouth and he will turn in that direction. When you pull on the other side, then she will turn that way. Do you know what happens when you pull them both at the same time? The horse should stop!

In the book of James it talks a lot about learning how to control our tongue. In James 3:3 it says that a bit is very small but it can control the entire horse. That means that if you want to control a gigantic horse all you need to do is control the bit in its mouth.

In James 1:26 it tells us that we may try to act religious, but if we cannot control our tongue then our religion is worthless. If we learn how to control this tiny bit then we can control a huge horse. If we learn how to control our tongue we can control our whole body.

We control our tongue by only speaking good and honorable things. When we gossip or when we tell lies or say bad things about people we are not controlling our tongues at all, and the Bible says that our religion is worthless.

Let us learn how to control our tongues. If you are tempted to say something that you shouldn’t maybe you should walk away for a few minutes. Maybe you should bite your tongue! Maybe you should think of something nice to say instead.
