One In Seven Billion

Resources needed:

  • A bag of lentils
  • A blue permanent marker pen or blue food dye
  • A large bowl


You’ll need to colour one of the lentils in blue either using a blue marker pen or blue food dye.

Once you’ve done this pour all of the lentils into a large bowl and print the instructions.


Somewhere in this bowl is a single blue lentil.

Close your eyes and pick one lentil from the bowl. Is it a blue one?

The chances of picking a blue lentil first time are somewhere around one in a thousand.

You are more unique than a blue lentil! In all of the 7 billion people on the planet not a single one is exactly like you.

Psalm 139 says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made – God made you to be unique and loves you completely!
