TITLE: Think good thoughts
AIM: What we think dictates who we become
OBJECT: Sandpaper

[Begin by chatting with the kids about sandpaper, its uses etc - use the following questions to guide the discussion]
What do you think this is? [sandpaper]
What's it used for? [making things smooth]
What would happen if I sanded the wall [take off the paint]

That's right. Sandpaper is a very useful tool. It can be used to make wood beautifully smooth - like the table there. A beautiful piece of furniture.

Sandpaper can also be used to make things rough. If I were to take a piece of rough sandpaper and rub the wall here - it would take of the paint and put scratches in the wall.

The Bible says our thoughts are like sandpaper.
Now the tell the tale : "Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts."

The thoughts we think are like he sandpaper - good thoughts, thinking like God wants us to think can make us beautiful and smooth. Bad thoughts can scratch and damage us.

What is the second point of the code? [clean]
What does it mean? [clean in body, MIND and speech]

This week, and every week think about the sandpaper. Think about what you are thinking about. Your life is shaped by your thoughts.

Think abt it :-) BFN.....
