 FEARLESS FAITH

BIBLE TRUTH

Be strong and courageous in Jesus.

 WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Joshua 1:9

New International Version (NIV)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

 HANDS-ON EXPERIMENT

Hydrophobic Sand

INGREDIENTS

  • Colored Sand
  • Water
  • Waterproof Spray
  • Transparent Cup

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1 Spread the colored sand onto the cookie sheet.

STEP 2:  Have an adult spray the sand evenly with the waterproof spray. Mix and spray the sand, several times. Allow the sand to completely dry.

STEP 3:  Fill the transparent cup more than half the way with water. Pour the sand into the water, remove the sand from the water, and observe. Describe and classify the sand by its observable properties.

EXPLANATION 

The sand remains dry, even when submerged into the water. The reason, the waterproof spray makes the sand hydrophobic, meaning it’s scared of water.

BIBLE CONNECTION

As a Christian, we should repeal fear like the sand repeals water, trusting God will be with us, wherever we may go.
