Object Lesson - An Overflowing Cup: Object Lesson - An Overflowing Cup www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com “My cup runs over.” A cup is used quite often in the Bible to represent a person’s fate, a person’s destiny. The cup could be one of blessing or of judgment. Is your cup empty? Half full? Overflowing? In a place where water was scarce an overflowing cup implied abundance. This weeks lesson is great for summer in that the youth will get a little wet while learning about what is means to be filled to overflowing with the blessings of God. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com PLEASE SHARE THIS IDEA ON FACEBOOK CLICK HERE PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Games Using Water and Cups Filler Up  – Divide the youth into pairs. Partners stand six feet apart. One person gets a cup with a ping-pong ball in it and the other a water gun. At you signal, those with the water pistol must race to squirt enough water into the cup to make the pin-pong ball float. Keep a bucket of water nearby for easy refills. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Bottle Fill Relay   – Each team appoints one member to lie face up with head toward the starting line, holding an empty pop bottle on his or her head. One member from each team fills a cup (made of nonbendable material) with water, runs to the bottle, and pours in water until it is gone. He or she then runs back, and the next contestant runs out with a cup of water as soon as the first player crosses the starting line. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Water Cup Derby  – Divide into teams. Each team member will fill a cup with water from a shared water bucket, put it over their head and run to a team soda bottle (or bucket) and poor it in. The team that finishes first gets 5 points, but the team that has the most water in the bucket gets 10. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Leaky Cup Relay  – Give each team a plastic cup or sturdy paper cup with holes punched in it. The first person on a team fills it up and passes the leaking cup over his or her head. The person who receives it must pass it under his or her legs to the next person – Over, under, over, under and it reaches the end of the line. At the end of the line, the last youth must run and dump any water that is left in the cup into a 5 gallon bucket and then run to the front of the line. After a given time, whomever has the most water in their 5 gallon bucket wins. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Jumping Water Splash  – Give each youth a plastic or paper cup full of water. While two players twirl a large jump rope, jumpers one by one are to attempt three consecutive jumps. They are to do this while holding onto their cup of water and trying to do let any water spill. The youth that has the most water left is the winner. You can keep playing until only one person has water left in their cup. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Gargling Charades  – This is kind of like charades, but each youth is given a cup of water and must use the water to gargle a given Christian Song while their teammates try to guess the title of the song. PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL MAKE IT SPIRITUAL What is the purpose of a cup? When the Bible talks bout filling our Cup, what does the cup represent? With what does God fill our cup? Did you trust your team mates to try to aim only for the cup, or were you worried they’d “accidentally” miss? What role does trust play when we come to God asking our cup to be filled? PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com Was there a trade-off between trying to be quick vs trying to be accurate? How might this apply spiritually? What happened when your cup was emptied? What is the meaning of the phrase “My cup runs over”? Why is a clean cup important? PowerPoint Presentation: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.creativeobjectlessons.com MAKE IT PRACTICAL What are some things youth try to fill the emptiness in their lives with? What are some things that youth try to quench their thirsts with in life? Are there some things dirty a person’s cup? What is the solution for a leaky cup? Why does God fill our cup to overflowing?
