     Our spiritual gifts and our
     relationship with God can serve
     as a taste or smell to entice
     others to taste and see that the
     Lord is Good. (Psalm 34:8) Our
     lives can be the scent of life to
     others. (2 Corinthians 2:16)

    Materials
    A large opaque cloth sack in
    which you can place fruits (a dark
    colored pillow case works fine),
    and a variety of fruits that can be
    identified by touch (and maybe
    smell).

    Activity
    Place all the fruits in a single bag.
    You should have as many fruits as
    possible but you can vary the
    number of fruits depending on
    the age of your group and the
    appropriate difficulty. If you wish
    to expedite this activity you might
    prepare several bags of identical
    items. Without looking inside the
    bag, have youth touch the items
    in the bag and then go back and
    write down all the items. Award
    kids who get them all correct or
    the most correct

    Variation
    Blindfold the participants and ask
    them to identify and write down the
    various fruits according to the scent
    or give them a sample to identify by
    taste. You could also make a fruit
    salad and have youth identify the
    various fruits in the salad.

   Application
   Just as you identified by touch the
   presence of items that you could not
   see, we can identify the presence of
   God in the ways he touches our lives.
   Many times he uses other people to
   touch our lives. Even today, you may
   not see Jesus, but you know he is
   there and has other people to take
   care of you. Sometimes we cannot
   see, but we can smell or taste. Our
   spiritual gifts and our relationship
   with God can serve as a taste or smell
   to entice others to taste and see that
   the Lord is Good. (Psalm 34:8) Our
   lives can be the scent of life to others.
   (2 Corinthians 2:16)
