Bring in a beautifully baked cake into class. Ask the students if they would like a piece of the cake. Choose someone that says yes and with your hand grab out a piece of cake and slap it down on a plate and hand it to them. Of course, they will be shocked. Use this to show that the gospel is more attractive depending on how it is served. Then slice a nice piece of cake to show the contrast and let the class members have a piece of cake asking how they would like theirs served. This was very successful.

One interpretation of this lesson could be: One way I see it is that scripture in Alma that talks about the wickedness of the church was a stumbling block to those who did not believe. The church was stopped in it's progress. It matters how we dress and what we say and how honest we are because we are serving up the church at all times, even when we don't think about it.
