Bobby's Reality Show

Seed Time Game Show, Number 7

Voice: Welcome to the Sow Your Seed Game Show with your favorite hostesses and mine, Bobby Bling and Chloe Starr!

(Chloe Starr and Bobby Bling enter to cheering audience and game show music.)

Bobby: And today we have something really special in store for you kids.

Chloe: (Surprised) We do?

Bobby: Absolutely. Today it’s time for the REALITY Seed Time Show. (Getting more excited as she continues.) The show where ravenous man-eating alligators are waiting to catch you if you fall off the bridge made of fraying rope and rotten planks that you have to cross in the middle of the rainforest while you try to get to the offering box on the other side. (Builds with the drama until the end when she realizes that Chloe is just not visualizing this with her.) What?

Chloe: What? Who on earth is going to try something that impossible?

Bobby: Well...(Still dramatic) would you believe they have to get past two possums waiting by the highway on the way to church?

Chloe: (Rolling her eyes.) Not really.

Bobby: Okay...(Still dramatic) how about if they have to get past a crew member holding a stick horse as you...?

Chloe: Bobby, this IS a reality show, but it’s about really trusting God with your tithe and

Bobby: Hey, it’s all about ratings. I was just trying to liven things up a little.

Chloe: Bobby, you liven things up just by being you. Believe me. Kids, are you ready for the Sow Your Seed Game Show? (Response) This is your big chance to REALLY win kid cash by REALLY answering questions about sowing. Bobby, you can ask the first question.

Bobby: Cool. Here it is. Where can you put your seed if you want it to be safe? 1) In God’s kingdom, 2) in your piggy bank, or 3) in your favorite sock. (Waits for children to answer.) Right! The only place where the thief can’t steal or the moth destroy your seed is in God’s kingdom. It’s where your seed belongs!

Chloe: Here’s question number two. After the farmer plants his seed, what does he do? A) Goes out for an ice cream cone, B) goes to bed and rests, or C) panics and runs in circles. (Waits for response.) Correct. He goes to bed. The farmer knows that God causes the seed to grow, and once it’s planted, he can trust God to take over from there.

Bobby: Last question. What kind of giver does God love? A) A grumpy giver, B) a okay-only-if-I-have-to giver, or C) a cheerful giver. (Choose a child to answer) You’re right! God loves a cheerful giver. You can be cheerful when you give because you know that God will bless you right back. You can’t out-give God.

Chloe: That’s all the time we have today. Thanks for coming to the Sow Your Seed Game Show.

Bobby: The show without alligators, rickety bridges, or jungles. (To Chloe) Don’t you think we could add a jungle or two for excitement? I think a jungle would be cool. There would be monkeys, and elephants, and tigers, and...(keeps up dialogue while being pulled off stage.)

Chloe: (Dragging Bobby off stage while shaking her head.) Bobby, Bobby, Bobby.
