We made up a lie and said that it was represented by the first stick of gum and each started chewing. That lie lead to another, and so they had to put the second in their mouths right on top of the first. That one turned into a third...and so on.
By the time you have 3 or 4 sticks of gum in your mouth you can't even hardly talk! How do you get rid of it? If you swallow it then it is still with you. You have to repent and get it out of you. Own up. Make it right. It was pretty visual.

An object lesson is a short, thought-provoking message often used as an attention-getter at the beginning or end of a lesson. Please visit our LDS Activities section for activities that take 30 minutes or more.
Each idea in our collection of LDS Object Lessons was shared by the visitors and members of this website. We are able to host them free of charge, thanks to proceeds from our LDS store.
