Matthew 5:14-16

14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.

15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.

16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Rumpelstiltskin: A Wee Little Tale

“Rumpelstiltskin: A Wee Little Tale,” an Adventures in Odyssey Club exclusive, is episode #866 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Dave Arnold, and was originally released on May 1, 2019.


A fresh spin on the classic tale of a greedy king, a desperate girl, and an elf who turns straw into gold — for a price.

Discussion Questions

  1. If you could choose the next fairy tale to be adapted into a KIDS Radio episode, which one would it be? Which Odyssey characters would you cast in the various roles?
  2. Why is it a bad idea to make promises we can't keep like the Miller did? Discuss how God's promises are reliable (Joshua 21:45, Hebrews 10:23), whereas Satan promises more than he plans to deliver (Genesis 3:1-7).
  3. Read Proverbs 14:31. Who in "Rumpelstiltskin: A Wee Little Tale" took unfair advantage of someone who was poor and desperate? How?
  4. What do you think causes people to be greedy? How can God's faithful presence in our lives help us to be content with what we have (Hebrews 13:5)?
  5. Can you think of anyone (perhaps a celebrity) who, like the king, never seems to have enough?
  6. Compare the "leadership" of the king in this month's episode with the leadership modeled by Jesus—the King of kings—in John 13:1-17.
  7. Acts 20:35 tells us it is "more blessed to give than to receive." What does that mean? How have you found this to be true in your life?
  8. Who is the most generous person you know? Why do you think so?
  9. How might Rumpelstiltskin's story have ended differently had he been more unselfish with his talent?
  10. If you could spin straw into gold, how would you use that special gift? After sharing, read 1 Peter 4:10-11 and ask, "What talent has God given you that could be used to bless others?"
