I have a skit called “Fix My Eyes”, but that is not the main point. Ideas are great, but it is even better when you ‘make it your own’. I offer basic ideas, and you are more than welcome to change, tweak, and improve these skits to fit your character. I encourage you to use what you like and throw out the rest. Make it yours!
In October, I mentioned props that I had made: ‘prescription’ glasses and ‘contact’ lenses. Today I am going to share the skit using those props, plus two foam ‘I’s and big sunglasses. (sunglasses). I made my own large foam ‘I’s.
I did this skit at churches, but it can easily be modified for any audience. I will share the skit the way Peach E. Keene did it…
“I was reading my B-I-B-L-E this morning and I found something that I can do! Hebrews 12:2 told me to ‘fix my eyes’! That’s easy! I bought some cheap glasses at the Dollar Store.” (Put some plain, funny glasses on.) “No, I think these make me look cheap! Oh, I mean funny!”
“Then I got some prescription glasses! They were expensive!” (These are made by gluing empty prescription bottles to frames.) Take the glasses off and read the label.
“May cause drow-si-ness. I don’t know what ‘drowsiness’ is, but I’m getting sleepy!”
“Maybe I will look better in contacts! Do you like my contact lenses?” (Attach empty boxes of ‘Contact’ cold medicine to frames to make these.)
“Wow! Sunglasses! Hey! Who turned out the lights!”
At this point, have a friend (or another clown) interrupt and tell you that you forgot the rest of the verse.
“You mean there’s more? I have to fix more than my eyes?”
The other person reads all of Hebrews 12:2 “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Peach E. just stood there staring at her friend, thinking about the verse. Finally, she said, “Oh, now I get it! Fix my eyes on Jesus!” She takes two foam ‘I’s out of her bag and happily puts them on the Cross.
The friend walks away shaking her head.
Have fun ‘fixing your eyes’!
