Bible Story Reference: Luke 10:38-42, John 12:1-3
Matthew 15:8 (NIV)
“These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”
As Jesus and his disciples were travelling, they came to a town where Martha lived with her sister Mary. The sisters welcomed Jesus into their home and Martha immediately began to work very hard to get supper ready for Jesus. While Martha busied herself in preparing the meal, Mary just sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to his teaching.
Martha was upset that her sister was not helping her, so she went to Jesus and said, “Do you see that my sister is not helping me? Tell her to help me.”
Dear Jesus, help us to remember that you are the most important thing in our lives. Don’t let us get so busy with other things that we forget to spend time with you. Amen.
Time for Jesus
What You Need
Use a pencil and a circular object to draw a circle. This is the base of the paper clock.
Once you have drawn the circle of the required size, take up a pair of scissors and cut along the drawn circle.
Cut four circles of the same colour. These will form the four number places in the paper clock. All these places have to be at ninety degrees from each other.
Stick these bright coloured circles in places on the edge of the paper clock.
Cut eight circles of a smaller size as compared to the previous ones.
Now stick two of these circles in between the two of the previously stuck circles. You have a complete twelve circles on the clock.
You can add two ear shapes on the top of the clock to make it more fun.
Fill in the numbers from one to twelve in the circles already stuck on the clock using a pen.
On a piece of paper, cut two thin strips for the hands of the clock. The hour hand should be cut smaller than the minute hand.
Once you have cut the hands for the clock, stick them, stemming from the centre of the clock circle.
You can point them at any hour and use glue to stick them in place.
