Supplies: a box of chocolates

Ask “How do you know that all of God’s wonderful promises are true? How do you know that they are good and will really work?” Get out a box of chocolates. Ask “How do you know that these chocolates are good? They certainly look good, but do you know that they really are good just by looking at them? – No. They smell good, don’t they, but can you tell if they are good by smelling them? – No. I could tell you all the ingredients – cocoa, sugar, butter etc. – and how the chocolates were made, but would you then know if they really are good? – No. I could introduce you to people who have tasted them, and they will tell you how good they are, but would you then know they were good? – No. I could eat one myself (proceed to do so). Oh yes, they really are good! But do you now know that they are good? – No. What would you have to do to find out for yourselves if they are really good? That’s right. You would have to taste them for yourselves. It is exactly the same with God’s promises. The Bible tells us to Taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8). The only way that you will prove for yourselves that God’s promises are good is by putting them to the test, and trying them out for yourselves. Now, who would like to put these chocolates to the test, and prove that they are good?”
