The Heart of Moses
Moses had his heart set on getting the Israelites out of Egypt. Your goals must be aligned with what God had put in your heart. For God to be in our hearts, we must not harden our hearts. To demonstrate this, you will use 2 eggs. Hard boil one egg. Mark the raw egg with a cross. If we have hardened our hearts to God’s will, then the devil will be able to manipulate us to do his work. Spin the hard-boiled egg. The devil can spin us however he chooses. If we have kept our hearts open to doing God’s will, then the devil can’t make us do his work. Try to spin the raw egg. No matter how hard you try, the raw egg will not spin.
“If only you would listen to him today; do not harden your hearts.” Hebrews 3:15
After you finish the activity, process it with these or similar questions:
- Did you like spinning eggs?
- Did you expect some to spin and others not?
- Can you see how keeping your heart open and not hardened makes it difficult for the devil to spin you?
- Will you remember the spinning egg the next time you want to close your heart?
