We need to give up the old life to receive the new.
Ty – trying to let go of the past, but finds himself clinging to it.
2 white athletic socks, one really old and torn up, the other brand new, a sock drawer (if needed), a trash can
Ty needs to be passionate as he’s talking to his socks. It’s as if he’s breaking up with a girl friend or saying good bye to an old friend. The more over the top the better. Make sure the socks are white—the wear and tear shows up better on white.
Scripture Reference: Matthew 9:16-17; Mark 2:21-22; Romans 7:6
The Bible makes it very clear—to receive the new life, we have to give up the old life. That old life has some good memories, many of them ridiculous and foolish.
The new life comes with so much promise, much of it untested, so it shouldn’t be discounted just because it doesn’t have many memories attached to it. Over time, the new life will be full of memories and fun and the old life, completely forgotten.
