Just like Dumbowas made special God has made eachone of us very special and he has a veryspecial plan for each of us.There is a story in the Bible of a manname John. God knew John before he wasborn and He had a special job for John todo when he grew up. Johns mum anddads names were Elizabeth and Zacha-rias. They taught John about God. Johnwas different to many people because heate grasshoppers and honey and hisclothes were made from a camel.The special job God had for John was forhim to tell others about Jesus and getthem ready to meet him.God wants you to grow up and be just likeJesus and serve him.Remind children that God loves them very

    much and he has a very special plan foreach one of them!

    Props Needed: Picture of Dumbo, Grasshopper

    Dumbo was born with big ears that he was embarrassed about,but it was his big ears that he could use to fly. Just like Dumbowas made special God has made each one of us very special andhe has a very special plan for each of us.There is a story in the Bible of a man named John.Elizabeth and Zacharias were Johns parents. They taught Johnabout God and told him that he had a special job to do for God.John was different than most people of his time -- He lived out inthe wilderness. He dressed in clothes that were made fromcamel's hair and ate things that he found in the desert like locust(grasshoppers) and wild honey.One day God's words came to John and John began to preach tothe people what God had told him. He told them to "Stop doing

    wrong and get ready because the Savior was coming." He wouldbaptize the people who came to him and said they wanted to stopdoing wrong. Soon people began to call him John the Bap-tist. People from all over would come out to the wilderness andlisten to John the Baptist. Some people thought he was theirpromised Savior, but John told them that he wasn't and that hisjob was to tell people about the Savior and get them ready tomeet him.God knew who John was before he was even born and had a spe-cial job for him. God also knew who you were before you wereborn and has a special job for you to do.Ask children what they would like to be when they grow up? Youmay grow up to be a minister or a teacher or a great evangelist or

    you may be a fireman, or a secretary or a mommy or daddy. Nomatter what you become God wants you to grow up to be likeJesus and serve him. He wants you to tell others about Jesusjust like John the Baptist and tell them to be ready because Je-sus is coming again.

    Ca rson d isc overs tha t God is writing a sto ry of h is life a nd if he c hooses to follow

    Go d s story it w ill be one full of fun a nd exciting things.
