Object: a blindfold

One day when Jesus was with his disciples, they asked him for something. Maybe we would ask Jesus for power or for money but his disciples asked for faith. In Luke 17:5 it says, The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." Faith is a big word, what does it really mean? (Wait for responses from children.) Let's use this blindfold to help us to understand it better. I need a volunteer to be blindfolded.... click here for the rest of the children's sermon
