Five friends talk at the coffee hour at church. The skit is intended as a lead-in to a sermon or skit written by you! This is just a tickler to get others thinking. The full presentation of the message comes in your sermon or devotion.
Vaughn: Good morning everyone. I feel great. Tell me your ills and woes. Nothing seems too big to handle today.
Leon: I used to have days like that once.
Danny: Super hero Vaughn.
Estelle: Itís nice to feel in control for once.
Julie: I used to feel that way, too, Estelle, but now Iím not convinced I like feeling so sure of myself all the time.
Vaughn: Youíd rather feel weak and insignificant? Iíve had those days and I donít think I like them very much.
Julie: Well, weak and insignificant worked for me last week.
Danny: What do you mean it worked for you?
Julie: Well, my good friend, Lisa, came over last week and was crying about a fight she had had with her sister. She knows how much I like to analyze things and look at all angles for possible solutions.
Estelle: Me, too. I can always think of great ways for others to solve their problems.
Leon: So, did you get that particular problem sorted out for her?
Julie: The fact is that I was so tired that I couldnít even sort my own day out, so I said, ďLisa, letís just pray about this. God will know best how to work this out. Heís a God of love so Heíll know what to do.Ē So we just prayed about it and Lisa went home feeling a lot better.
Danny: See, Lisa was smart to come to you. You do know how to help.
Julie: But donít you see? It was only because I was too tired to come up with all my usual solutions that we thought to cast our cares on the One who cares for us.
Leon: It was your weakness that made you strong.
Vaughn: Well, then, I still feel great today, but any problem that comes along Iíll turn over to God anyway. That way my weak solutions wonít block His stronger ones.
Estelle: Thatís a great plan, Vaughn. When we turn to God for help, we respond with His wisdom and understanding. And then our imperfect solutions are replaced by His all-knowing, all loving answer to our needs.
