Shine Your Light: The Pumpkin Patch Parable

Have you heard the pumpkin parable?  A friend was a Preschool teacher for many years and this was one of her favorite activities to do with her class!  It’s a simple, fun way to share the gospel with kids (and adults) while carving your pumpkin.  Below is a read-aloud of the book, The Pumpkin Patch Parable.

It tells the story of the farmer (God) picking a pumpkin (you and me), cleaning out the yucky insides (our sin), carving a beautiful face, and then lighting it up (the holy spirit in us).  It’s a great way for us to visually see how God removes our sin and places His light in us.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. -Matthew 5:16 (NIV)
