God keeps us afloat during difficult times.
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
New International Version (KJV)
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
· Two Oranges
· Large Transparent Bowl
· Digital Scale
STEP 1: Fill the large transparent bowl half of the way with water. Describe the water by using its observable properties.
STEP 2:Remove the peeling from one of the oranges. Describe the oranges by using their observable properties.
STEP 3: Using the digital scale, determine the mass of the orange without the peeling and the orange with the peeling. Using this measurement, identify the oranges based on this property.
STEP 4: Drop the orange without the peeling in the water. What happens? Drop the orange with the peeling in the water. What happens?
The orange without the peeling sinks, while the orange with the peeling floats. The orange peeling is filled with tiny pockets of air, which makes the orange less dense than water, causing it to float. When the peeling is removed, the orange become denser than water, and sinks.
God represents the orange peeling, who keeps us afloat during the difficult times in our lives
