Youth Bible study activity using wind-up toys.Works great as a discussion about free will orfor discussing running in the Christian race. It
could also be tied into Disney’s “Toy Story 3″ in
which Andy is all grown up now and ready toleave home for college. For the toys, theprospect of having no one who will Love themand spend time with them takes them down apath of despair and filled with dangers. Andyhas to learn to put away childish things and thetoys find purpose in bringing joy to anotheryoung person, filled with life, energy, love andchildish delight. Sometime we also feel thatGod has set us aside and gone on to other
things. But he hasn’t forgotten us. He will
always be there for us. And like the toys, wemay find our energy exhausted, and ourselvesin less than pristine condition, but we findgreat joy in life when we are fulfilling thepurpose for which we were created.
