5. "On my mission we had a little repentance visual. We had a grey cloud that said "Sin" on it and then we had white foot prints. Each foot had a step of repentance. They lead to a rainbow that we had "Forgiveness" written on it or something like that. We would put the grey cloud down and then they had to put the foot prints in the correct order and they would lead to the rainbow." (Idea by Janelle Openshaw / ga03022007)

6. The Twenty Dollar Bill (story and/or object lesson) -  A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this."  He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up. He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air. "Well," he replied, "what if I do this?"  And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty.  "Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.  "My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson.  No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.  It was still worth $20.  Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.  We feel as though we are worthless.  But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value in God's eyes.  To Him, dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to Him.  In other words, the worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we are but by WHOSE we are!  We never lose our worth!
