I Am Blessed

This is a reader theater style reading for 3 readers. The success of this piece depends on the way that the readers deliver their lines. Most of the time they are saying basically the same thing, but their tone and attitude are what make the skit work.

Reader One is very excited and knows that he/she is blessed. Reader Two is struggling with the idea of being blessed by God even without material things. Reader Three knows that the Bible says he/she is blessed, but he/she doesn’t exactly believe it. Reader one is happy throughout the skit. Reader Two begins the skit somewhat confused and then becomes amazed at the blessings of God. Reader Three is always a little sarcastic and spiteful.
