- an hourglass or game timer
Show the hourglass or timer and discuss how we are all like the individual pieces of sand. We are all together in the top of the hourglass, and we go down the hourglass we may feel like we are being restricted and squeezed. People are telling us what to do, how to act, how to dress, what time to be home, etc. But if we decide not to follow the rules and decide to break the "law of gravity" we will never know a whole world of freedom that we are missing out on. We are missing out the freedom to be sealed in the temple, serve a mission, receive personal revelation etc.
When the sand has reached the bottom, show the class how some pieces of sand are stuck to the glass. Remind the class not to break laws and end up being stuck on the glass, unable to progress.
