A bag full of ‘ordinary’ things, chosen because they have nothing significant or special about them; the Bible verses related to salvation inside a brown envelope at the bottom of the bag.

Tell the children you have brought along some things to show them. Pick up your bag and bring out the items one by one, with a commentary going something like this: “Here I have a mug. Well, it’s rather ordinary. There’s nothing much I can say about it. What’s next? Here’s a pencil… have a whole box just like it at home. Here is an exercise book. It’s empty. Nothing special about it at all. A small piece of rope… I forgot what that was from. Next–a roll of sticky tape. Now why is that in the bag? a stone… hmm I wonder how that got in here… And so on until the bag is empty except for the envelope. Take it out and say.. hmm I wonder what this is… Read out the verse in the envelope: 1 Corinthians 1:26-28

God deliberately chooses ‘ordinary’ people-people who have nothing special about them. Does anyone here feel they are rather ordinary? Perhaps they never win at games, or shine in class. Perhaps they never place first, never are the best at anything. These are exactly the sort of people God wants to be his own! He deliberately chose each person here. We don’t have to be rich, important or superstars to be special in God’s eyes. He loves and wants ordinary people like you and me!
