What are things in the scripture block that you could actually see, touch, smell, visualize?. Picture these in your mind or better find the actually object and see what it teaches you about the way it is used in the verses you are reading.
Look For: Look for objects in the scriptures--things that you could see, hold, touch, etc.
Example: Isaiah 5:18 describes people that carry their sins like beasts of burden tugging their loads. Imagine what it would look like if we could see the sins that people carry and won't let go by repenting. How silly they would look! How would YOU look if we could all see the sins that you carry around? The image teaches us that it is never worth carting around our sins and transgressions but we should give them up.
Consider objectifying the objects by displaying any common physical objects during your lesson or a picture of an item.
