The pharisee and the publican Sunday School lesson
Lesson Luke 18:10-14
SING: any praise song
Object Lesson: Give each student a plain balloon. show students how a deflated balloon is pliable. You can stretch it, wrap it around things, put it inside other things, pull it over smaller things. Then have everyone blow up their balloons. Talk about how it is no longer flexible. It is puffed up now, and can only be one shape. It is only able to be used for certain things.
A puffed up person is not as useful to God as a flexible, pliable, humble person. Humility makes us flexible, useable, and moldable in God's work.
Craft: Draw pictures or cut out pictures of things that God has made or done that we can not do.

The Publican said
No No Pharisee you do wrong
