"Letting My Light Shine For Jesus" Lantern

So I'm sure everyone is familiar with the old paper lantern. It's been around forever. Well, one year when I taught Sunday School, I decided to incorporate them into a lesson.

What do lanterns do?
They give off light. They help you see. "They are a light in the darkness."

So how can we be a light in the darkness? How can we let our light shine for Jesus?

I decided this lantern activity would be perfect to make for Holidays. 'Tis the season of giving!

I'm pretty sure you already know how to make the lanterns, but just in case you don't...

We folded our paper in half longways and cut strips in the folded side. (Not all the way to the end)

Open up your paper and write on the strips ways you can let your light shine for Jesus.

We can help others.  In what ways?


Mathew 5: 14-16        
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
