While you are grocery shopping, choose a piece of fruit or vegetable that looks funny on the outside but actually tastes sweet. Kiwi fruit, lychees, dragon fruit and coconuts are good examples.
Once you are home, peel or slice open the fruit and compare what your children thought the fruit would look like and what it really looks like. Taste it as well. The questions for discussion can create further opportunity to point out that only God knows what is inside our hearts and that we should not judge others.
“There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you – who are you to judge your neighbor?”
“You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment?”
