In John 14:8, Philip said to Jesus: ‘Show us the Father, that is all we need.’ Jesus’ replied: ‘Whoever has seen me has seen the Father’ ( Jn 14:9).

Just like you can see me in this mirror we can See God’s reflection in Jesus. When we look at Jesus we see God. Jesus was God’s perfect reflection. If we want to see God clearly, we should read all about Jesus to get a complete picture.

www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Variations Ways to make this option more active: * Have children write their names while looking into the mirror. * Print some things backwards (e.g. the scripture verse) that children must use a mirror to read.

(Jesus is the light of the world) * Have kids list things they do with mirrors * Have two images that are mirror reflections of each other but with changes. Children must identify the differences in the two images. (Spot the Differences)

Obtain a car side mirror or makeup mirror. Children must hold the mirror above their heads, and then look up at the mirror positioning it in a way that shows the floor. If they look down they will be disqualified. While looking up at the mirror so that it reflects the floor, kids must walk the line to the end of the room then return. If they miss stepping on the line they must return to the start. Using a stop watch, time the team in getting all members to walk the line (relay style) Team with the quickest time wins.
