- a clothes pin
For an object lesson regarding marriage, partnerships, working together, etc. I used a simple clothespin. I showed the class that if I only have one side of the clothespin it does not perform it's full function.
However, with the two sides of the clothespin being bonded together by the Lord the clothespin can perform it's full function. In relationships if one side is trying to do it all, the relationship will not always work. But by working together with the Lord it is amazing what can be accomplished.
