Tiny the Mouse

I'm very tiny and cute!

Application:

By obeying the will of God, and doing what pleases God, we show that we are truly God's children.

Materials You Need:

One E260 balloon (any colour).

Making the Sculpture:

  1. Inflate the balloon for only 150mm and tie off.
  2. Twist a 25 mm bubble for a head, then two 25mm bubbles and twist-connect these for the ears.
  3. Twist a 20 mm bubble for the neck, then two 25mm bubbles and twist-connect these for the front legs.
  4. Twist a 25 mm bubble for the body, then two 25mm bubbles and twist-connect these for the back legs.
  5. Ensure that there is a small bubble at the base of the tail in order to lock the back legs.  Otherwise, adjust the body length to achieve this.
  6. Draw a mouth and eyes with a black pen.
     

 
Making Tiny the Mouse

Lesson:

Tiny, my little mouse reminds us of how cute babies are.  But, it doesn't take long for them to reach the "terrible twos".  At this age temper tantrums start to appear as they develop a will of their own.  And when they don't get their own way - yelling and crying results!  The problem is that toddlers want their own way, all the time!

God has given us each a free will of our own.  He allows us to choose what we want to do with our lives.  Our choice grows wider as we get older and as the influence and control of our parents get less.  You can then choose to go God's way, or you can choose to go after pleasures in the world.

Jesus said that His purpose in life was to do the will of God and to finish the work that God had given Him to do, by dying on the cross (John 4:34).  He kept His eye very firmly on that purpose and became our Lord and Saviour as a result.  Jesus said in Matthew 12:50, that whoever does the will of God is His brother, and sister, and mother.  In other words if we choose to obey the will of God, by doing what pleases God, we show that we are truly God's children.

Well, cute as my little mouse is, he has to do what I want, because I give him a warm cage to live in, I feed him, give him water, and care for him all the time.  This is a perfect picture of how God provides all our needs, and loves, protects and cares for us!  For us to please God we need to do His will, and we can do this by:

  1. Loving God with all our heart, soul and mind.
  2. Praying every morning and night, and asking God to guide and protect us.
  3. Reading our Bible and then doing what it says.
  4. Going to Children's Church or Sunday School to learn more about Jesus and the Bible.
  5. Growing God's Kingdom by telling our friends and others that Jesus loves them.

You can choose to do God's will, or go your own way.  The choice is yours.  As for me, I want to serve my Lord and do His will.

God bless!
