These adult Bible study lesson plans teach about our souls and God. God entrusts our bodies to ourselves and we know how to care for them. Our souls, the part of us that longs to be with God, are better suited to have Him for a caretaker than ourselves.

1 Peter 2:25
For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
Here is another reference to the fact that God is in charge of our souls. He is the caretaker of that part of our selves because we do not always know what to do with it. Just as we do not know all the mysteries of the God who made us, neither do we know all the mysteries of the souls He has given us.
We know that He takes care of our souls because they are what set us apart from all His other creations. Our creation, in His image, meant that we were special, apart from all the other animals and with special abilities. He immersed each of us in Himself when He imparted a soul on us, because it made us recognize Him as our God and allowed us to open a dialogue with Him.
It is because of our souls that we love God, that we seek to be with Him, and that we are so far above all other animals. Our souls are the piece of us most completely like God.
