Sunday School Activities: A game to illustrate how difficult it can be to follow God’s wisdom and rules
God’s wisdom is always available, but sometimes it isn’t easy to follow. Remind them that sometimes they want to do things thier own way and in their own time, but they need to learn to get on God’s pace. In the following relay, they will pretend the person in front is the Lord, and the person behind is a human being.
Have students get up in front of the group two at a time. One student should stand in front, and the one standing behind should put her toes right against the front child’s heels. Time them as they try to walk from one end of the room to the other without the heels of the child in front separating from the toes of the child in back. The other children should observe and make a “bong!” noise every time their toes and heels come apart. The first couple to receive the least amount of “bongs!” while moving from one end of the room to the other wins.
When we’re trying to follow God’s wisdom, it’s best to go slowly and not to be devastated if we mess up at first!
