After reading “Braces and Bubblegum,” beginning on page 12 in this week's Guide, help us answer some questions: Was Dr. Miller being mean when he told Sandy she couldn’t chew bubblegum? How did he react when she broke the rules? What did she do when she realized the consequences of her actions? Do you see any similarities in the story to the way Jesus deals with our sins?

I can see how this is like a metaphor to Jesus and our sin. I remember having braces and being so upset about not being able to chew gum or eat popcorn. I was too scared to sneak gum but I did have a popcorn sneak. I didn't get caught... but I did find random pieces of popcorn in my mouth, which was a really bad experience. I guess that can be compared to how sin has short term but also long term consequences on your life.

Like Dr. Miller, God doesn't condemn us when we do wrong.
