Lesson 1: It’s just a game … does Christian Character matter?
1 Peter 3:15 Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life. … Give a kind and respectful answer and keep your conscience clear. This way you will make people ashamed for saying bad things about your good conduct as a follower of Christ. You are better off to obey God and suffer for doing right than to suffer for doing wrong. (CEV)
1 Peter 3:15 Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life.
Abiding by the Rules – Why is it important?
- We are to honor Christ in everything that we do. Following the rules is one way to honor God
- The 10 Commandments tell us that God thinks that rules are important – and rules are good! How else would we know how to play the games?
- Many games require teamwork – working together. It is important to be able to talk to your teammates, and more important, to be able to listen to them!
- Just like rules are important, following the directions is important too! Many times there is someone who is older, or who has played a game more often, who can help you to understand the rules. It is important to listen to them and follow their directions. I am going to be this person for our class time. It is important that you listen to me and follow my directions, so that everyone can have fun and learn how to play lots of new games!
