5th Grade Assignment

Friend Sue Beck sent me an email wih a really cute story about how a bunch of fifth graders used commercial jingles to put the focus on God. Made me think of how Whoopi Goldberg's character in Sister Act adapted some rock/pop songs to draw in people from the neighborhood to her church.

Then I thought, HEY, that might make for a fun family game to play. One night around the dinner table, see how many commercial jingles your kids can come up with that can be adapted for honoring or exemplifying God.

Have fun!

A fifth grade teacher in a Christian school asked her class to look at TV commercials and see if they could use them in some way to communicate ideas about God. Here are some of the results:
God is like BAYER ASPIRIN He works miracles.
God is like a FORD He's got a better idea.
God is like COKE He's the real thing.
God is like HALLMARK CARDS He cares enough to send His very best.
God is like TIDE He gets the stains out that others leave behind.
God is like GENERAL ELECTRIC He brings good things to life.
God is like SEARS He has everything.
God is like ALKA-SELTZER Try Him, you'll like Him
God is like SCOTCH TAPE You can't see Him, but you know He's there.
God is like DELTA He's ready when you are.
God is like ALLSTATE You're in good hands with Him.
God is like VO-5 Hair Spray He holds through all kinds of weather.
God is like DIAL SOAP Aren't you glad you have Him? Don't you wish everybody did?
God is like the U.S.POST OFFICE Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet nor ice will keep Him from His appointed destination.
God is like CHEVROLET. . .the heart beat of America.
God is like MAXWELL HOUSE Good to the very last drop.
God is like BOUNTY. . . He is the quicker picker upper. . can handle the tough jobs, and He won't fall apart on you.

Now it's your turn. What can you come up with?
