Don’t Steal the Bagel Commandment # 8
Special thanks to Wesley Edie, Family Life Pastor at Parklawn Assembly of God for sharing his 10 Commandments skit series with us.
Leader: Hey Kids! It was a busy day for me so I’m glad I stopped at the store before I arrived here and bought myself a snack. I won’t eat it now but, (looks around, where is it? I know I put it right here just a few minutes ago.
Maggie: Hey there Ms./Mr. _________. It is a great day isn’t it?
Leader: Yes it is. Did you happen to see a bagel anywhere?
Maggie: Um, a bagel? Like what did it look like?
Leader: I don’t know Maggie… possibly like a bagel!
Maggie: Oh a bagel?… not a cupcake right or a donut hole?
Leader: That’s right Maggie. I really thought I put my bagel here and now I can’t find it. It was the only thing I was going to eat. I didn’t get a chance to eat before I got here. I was in such hurry getting things ready I just didn’t get a chance.
Maggie: I think you lost it!
Leader: I know I lost it but I also know I put it right here. I think someone might have taken it.
Maggie: I mean, I think you lost your mind! Ha ha ha ha!
Leader: (sarcastically) Thanks Maggie.
Maggie: I think I saw a guy in a mask go that way. He looked like a bank robber and he had your bagel.
Leader: Nice try Maggie but I don’t believe you. In fact I kind of think you are acting a little suspicious.
Maggie: Me? Not me!
Leader: Did you steal my bagel?
Maggie: Well, maybe. I didn’t know it was your bagel!
Leader: Maggie, stealing is stealing. It doesn’t matter if you know it was mine or not!
Leader: It was the only thing I was going to eat. Actually, I’m surprised you liked it.
Maggie: Why’s that?
Leader: Well, what did it taste like?
Maggie: I kinda haven’t eaten it yet!
Leader: That’s what I thought.
Leader: Because it was a spinach bagel.
Maggie: Oh! Here you go, you can have it back.
Leader: Didn’t think you would like it.
Maggie: No way spinach, Blaaaah!
Leader: I think today’s commandment is important for you to hear Maggie. I encourage you to open your ears to this one.
Maggie: I will. No more just grabbing things that aren’t mine.
Leader:You mean stealing.
Maggie: Fine sorry for stealing your nasty spinach bagel. I’m out of here. Chow baby!
Leader: I hope Maggie learns a thing or two today
