Lesson Learned:  God leads us.
Materials Needed: none
Bible Verse:
Isaiah 42:16:
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
   along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
   and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
   I will not forsake them.

Talking Points:  When someone is blind, they can’t see anything.  Without God, we are all blind and walking in darkness.  God will light up our lives and lead us to Him.

Questions:  What do you think it would be like to be blind?  If you were blind, would you need someone to guide you around?

Activity:  Have the child close his or her eyes and guide them around the room, telling them to watch out for obstacles such as chairs or tables.  You may want to put pillows down on the ground as an extra challenge and then tell them to step over them or go around them.  The child can then guide you around the room.  (If you have more than one child, they can lead each other around the room).

Prayer:  Dear God, you lead the blind and guide them.  Guide us in our lives so that we can live like You tell us to. Amen!
