Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life" John 8:12.
Kaleidoscopes were invented by a Scottish scientist in 1816. The word kaleidoscope is a Greek word that means "Beautiful Form Watcher;" "kalos" means beautiful, "eidos" means form, and "scopos" means watcher.
Kaleidoscopes are a fascinating toy. Light brings out the best part of a kaleidoscope, which makes them a perfect craft to teach children about reflecting the light of Jesus!
Light and mirrors are the two main components in a Kaleidoscope. Without light to pass through the tube, which then reflects off the mirrors, a kaleidoscope will not display the wonderful forms inside.
Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" John 8:12. Christians are like kaleidoscopes, because when Jesus lives in our lives, his light shines through us, and we reflect God's beautiful image.
When you point your kaleidoscope towards the light, be reminded that Jesus is the Light of the world. Never forget that people are watching you. Let Jesus' light shine through!
