Scripture Reading 2 Corinthians 12:10
PUPPETS: Sally & Grandma

    SALLY: Grandma, why don't you become a Sunday School teacher? We sure do need some.

    G-MA Sally, I can't teach. I don't know my Bible well enough. I don't know how to handle children and I never went to college. You better find somebody else who would be better than I.

    SALLY: Grandma, what is it that Louise is holding?

    G-MA: Well, deary, it looks like a pencil.

    SALLY: What can a pencil do by itself?

    G-MA: Well, dab-nab-it, it can't do anything by itself.

    SALLY: You mean, it kind of depends on who is holding it?

    G-MA: I guess you could say that. Yes, you are right.

    SALLY: Grandma, are you like a pencil that hasn't been sharpened or are you a pencil that God couldn't use?

    G-MA: Oh, I'm sure God could do something with me if He took hold of me.

    SALLY: Well, then, why don't you let Him use you as a teacher? Our Sunday School needs teachers, and the children and young people in our Sunday School need teachers.

    G-MA: But aren't there some better people God could use?

    SALLY: Perhaps, but God told the Apostle Pauol "My power is made perfect in weakness. That's why Paul said, 'For the sake of Christ, then, I am satisfied with weaknesses ... for when I am weak, then I am strong'

    G-MA: A long time ago, when I was your age, my Sunday School teacher told me that Christians who know how weak they are, are the strongest when they ask God to make them strong.

    SALLY: Then you will try to be a Sunday School Teacher with God's help?

    G-MA: Yes, Sally, I will with God's help. Maybe there is someone else out there in the congregation that would also make a good Sunday School teacher.

    SALLY: Maybe. See you Grandma. See you boys and girls. Bye Peggy.
