Fun with Glo Germ™

Science with a twist

Order some Glo Germ online and have fun with this educational product that reveals the presence of bacteria on a surface.

Discussion point: Sin is like germs. It can hide and be hard for us to detect, but the Holy Spirit shows us our sins.

Some good concepts to cover with your children include the idea that sin makes our hearts sick, much like germs make our bodies sick. We can use soap and water to wash away germs, but we need Jesus to wash the sin out of hearts. Germs can hide, and so can sin! Just as Glo Germ illuminates germs, the Holy Spirit shows us our sin.
