Topic: Craft (as in handcraft) (02/08/07)

TITLE: RUN, Do Not Walk!

When you are asked to provide a craft for Bible school, RUN, do not walk away! Crafts can be messy and are time-consuming. But,…… if you have a burden for children and want to see them enjoy being creative with their hands, …… and if participating in a craft draws a child to Bible school where they might hear a Bible story; ……. and if in hearing the Bible story they learn they need a Savior, …..and if when they learn they need a Savior, they accept God’s free gift of salvation; then providing that handcraft, picking it out, purchasing, tracing, cutting, gluing, sorting, painting, and all the preparation work is worth it. This is your chance to be an influence into the craftsmanship of a child’s life.

So the next time you hear a call for someone to help with a craft at Bible school, RUN, do not walk, and answer this call! The benefit for the child and the long-term rewards for you are out of this world.

Very true and I liked your encouraging way of writing! Nice work!

I really like the 180 degree turn around from your first paragraph to your conclusion, and the chain of events you lay out in the body of your piece.

My only suggestion would be to work on punctutation. When you use ellipses, no other punctuation is needed, and you only need three dots.

This is clever and thought-provoking.
