TOPIC: sins, holiness, choices
SCRIPTURE: Judges 2:1-4, Mt.23:25-26, Rom.6:11-23,
. Heb.12:1, James 1:14-15
Style: allegory/conversation: person washes a cup
. only on the outside
Cast: PERSONS 1 & 2, NARRATOR
Set & Props: basin, wash cloth, 2 cups,
. pitcher (pretend or fill with water)
(PERSON 1 & 2 enter.)
PERSON 2 I’m kind of thirsty.
(PERSON 1 looks around and then checks the basin.)
PERSON 1 Me too, but I don’t have any clean cups left.
PERSON 2 How about you wash some cups,
. and I’ll get some water.
(PERSON 2 leaves.)
(PERSON 1 picks up a cup from the basin
and tries to wipe the inside.
He/she has a hard time getting his/her hand inside
so he decides to quickly just wipe off the outside
of the 2 cups.)
(PERSON 2 returns with a pitcher of “water”.)
(PERSON 1 turns around, holding out the 2 cups.)
PERSON 1 Done.
(PERSON 2 pours water into each cup.
Putting down the pitcher, PERSON 2 takes
one of the cups and is about to drink,
but notices the inside. PERSON 2 stops,
dropping his/her jaw in disgust.)
PERSON 2 Gross.
PERSON 1 What’s the matter?
(PERSON 1 takes a drink, then spits the water out.)
PERSON 1 Ewk! That is awful.
PERSON 2 Didn’t you wash the inside of the cup?
PERSON 1 I tried, but my hand couldn’t fit.
PERSON 2 The whole point of the cup is
. to hold liquids inside of it to drink.
. So there’s not much point in just washing
. the outside of a cup if the inside is dirty.
(PERSON 1 & 2 leave.)
NARRATOR God asked the Israelites to completely
. clean all their land of all altars to other gods
. or this sin would become a problem to them.
. In the same way, we should constantly
. be getting rid of the sin in our lives
. or it will be a problem to us. And only God
. is able to reach into the depths of our hearts
. and clean it for us when we ask Him.
