Gerry, and Sally
To show that being cool (walking in darkness) can be dangerous!
morning! Is that you Gerry?
of course it's me! What's wrong? Can't you see me?
yes, and no! I see something, but with these sunglasses, I can't tell WHO or
what things are!
Sally walks along and stumbles into something
I have bumped my knee five times so far today!
why are you wearing those sunglasses around here?
it's COOL! Everybody is wearing them! Don't you think I look cool Gerry? All my
friends tell me I do!
well, I dunno…
Gerry walks around Sally and tries to get a good look
at her from different angles. Sally keeps looking in the same direction not
knowing that he has moved away
anyway, I think it is cool to walk in the dark… hey, where did you go?
stop that! Stay still! You make me nervous when you move like that!
Sally moves toward him and bumps into something again
Now THAT really hurt!
I got to tell you… this walking in darkness bit is dangerous! Did you know
that the Bible tells us that we are supposed to walk "in the light?"
In Ephesians 5:8 "For ye were sometimes
darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light."
Sally: What does that mean?
Gerry: It means that we learn and obey God's word, and
let Jesus guide us instead of our friends!
Sally: But, but, is it cool to follow
Gerry: Sally, being a Christian means
not worrying about "being cool." It is better than being a fool,
constantly bumping into things, and hurting yourself, and sometimes not even
knowing WHO you are talking to
Sally takes off her glasses
Sally: I think I want to walk in
"the light." It really is a whole lot better!
Gerry: Good! I think so too! Now,
let's go find out what they are teaching in Sunday School class today!
Sally and Gerry head away
