Our First Aid Kit
Objects: A First Aid Kit
Theme: Jesus heals our hurts. The Bible is our "First Aid Kit"
Scripture: Psalm 119:50 My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
A first aid kit is a very important thing to have around. We should all have a first aid kit in our home, in our work place, and in our car. We have several of them around the church so that they will be handy if someone gets hurt.
What are some of the things you might expect to find in a first aid kit? Usually, there are some cotton balls to use to clean a wound. There should be a spray or ointment to kill germs so the wound wonít get infected. There may be another spray or ointment that is good for burns. And, of course, there should be bandages to put on the injury to keep it clean. When someone is hurt, it is important to have a first aid kit and to know how to use the things that are in it.
The Bible is a lot like a first aid kit. It has the answer to all of the hurts that we have in our life. If we get into a scrape, the Bible has the answer. If someone makes a cutting remark and it really hurts us, the Bible has the answer. If we have a burning question and just donít know what to do, the Bible has the answer. Some of you boys and girls have been going to Bible Drill. That is great, because when you are hurting, it is important to have Godís first aid kit and to know how to use it. The Bible says, ďMy comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.Ē Knowing how to use Godís first aid kit will save your life!
Thank you Lord, for healing the
hurts in our life. Teach us to trust in you. Amen.
