(CHILDREN 1 – 3 sit down.)

C 2   (to C 3)  I can’t believe we have to babysit!

C 3   I’ve never had to babysit before.  What do we do?

C 1   You can tell me a story.

C 2   Which story should we tell you?

C 1   Tell me – the best story in the Bible.

C 3   (looks through story book)
.     Ahhh, which one is that?

C 2   Oh, here, how about the story of Kind David?
.     David loved and followed God.  God loved David
.     and saved David from King Saul.

C 1   No, that’s not the one.

C 3   Well, what about the story of the prophet Elijah
.     who loved and followed God.  God loved Elijah
.     and saved him from starvation. (from being hungry)

C 1   Ahhh, no, that’s not the one.

C 2   Oh, what about the story about Naaman the leper?
.     He decided to love and follow God.  God loved him
.     and saved him from being very sick.

C 1   Ummmm, no, that’s not the one.                    2

C 3   Okay, what about the prophet Nehemiah?
.     He loved and followed God.  God loved Nehemiah,
.     and saved Israel’s land from the enemies.

C 1   No, that’s not the one.

C 2   Okay, how about the story of Queen Esther, who
.     loved and followed God.  God loved Esther, and
.     saved her people of Israel from being destroyed.

C 1   Nope, that’s not the one.

C 3   The story of Daniel is really awesome.
.     Daniel loved and followed God.  God loved Daniel
.     and God saved him from the lions in the lion den.

C 1   Mmmmm, no, that’s not the one.

C 2   Okay, so what about Jonah?  God loved Jonah,
.     and Jonah loved God, but disobeyed God.
.     After he decided to follow God,
.     God saved him from the belly of the fish.

C 1   Noooo, that’s not the one either.

C 3   So give us a hint.

C 1   John the Baptist told everyone about it.

C 2   John the Baptist was a messenger of God.

C 3   Yeah, John the Baptist told the people about Jesus.

C 2   Oh, I know!  The best story must be this –
.     God loves all of us so much,
.     that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ,
.     to die for our sins, so if we love and follow God,
.     God will save US - from eternal death.

C 1   That’s the one –

C 2   The best story in the Bible!

C 3   It is...  It’s the best story anywhere.
