You Gotta Have Heart

  • Cast Number: 2
  • Run-time: 4 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Deuteronomy 6:4-9
A re-phrasing of the greatest commandments.


Toad is wearing a brown tee-shirt with the word “TOAD”
Frog wears a green tee-shirt. Brown and green face paint spots on their faces.

Props: A tacky paper heart or heart-shaped candy box, A barbell (we made one from balloons) or weights, a light bulb, a shoe insert.

Sample of script:

Toad is in the room, stage center, the other props are nearby. He is huffing and puffing as he exercises with the barbells. Frog enters behind him, humming and skipping. Toad does not notice.

Frog: Hi Toad. Whatcha doing?

Toad is startled and drops barbells to floor

Frog: Oh, sorry. Are you exercising?

Toad: No. I am worshipping.

Frog: Well, no need to be snippy, about it. I said I was sorry.

Toad: No, really. I’m worshipping.

Frog: Really? I’ve never seen anyone worship like that.

Toad: It’s my own idea. When I was at church school they taught us about the greatest commandment. ‘Hear O Israel,’ it said. ‘You shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all your mind and with all your soul and with all your strength.’ So I’m trying to do that.

Frog: You are?

Toad: Look, see. I thought it would be better to do it, not just say it or read it. (Reaches down for barbells again) So, when I think about loving God with all my strength I really – uff – do it!
