To see things from God’s perspective
Get out an appropriate children’s card game with the cards in an order that favours the leader. Deal the cards out and play the game, making it obvious that you have dealt yourself the best cards.
See how the children react!! Does wrong doing prosper? Not before God, nor with your Sunday School children!.
