Sorting through advice…

Items needed:

  • 2 large bags of skittles
  • 10 clear plastic cups
  • 2 paper plates


  • Set up a table with two plates filled with skittles & 10 clear plastic cups (1 plate & 5 cups on each end)
  • Divide kids into 2 teams, lined up on opposite side of room
  • On call of “Go!”, the first person from each team runs to their teams respective plate & sorts 1 of each color skittle into a plastic cup. Once they have separated the colors, they run back to their line & tag the next kid in line who then runs to the plate and follows suit.
  • The team who can empty their plate & get all of their skittles sorted by color into the right cups first wins!


In 2 Chronicles 10, King Rehoboam seeks advice from different sources on how he should handle a matter. He ended up listening to the wrong advice…and it caused big problems for him!

We often gets lots of advice & opinions on things we should or shouldn’t do. The skittles represent all the advice & opinions we hear each day. We hear it from friends, teachers, & preachers…we see it on tv…we read it in books…how are we supposed to sort through all the opinions and find what GOD wants us to do? How do we make the WISE choice?

The Bible tells us that if “any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all men generously…and it will be given to you” James 1:5

We must sort through the advice we are given & ASK GOD what is the wise choice & what is the foolish choice!

He promises to help us find the wise choice when we take the time to ask Him!
