Bible Game: “Nice Wall, Good Wall”
Have your [tag]Sunday school[/tag] students stand in two lines, facing each other. Explain to the students in one line that every time they hear the word “Nice,” they move a step to the left (as they might not know left from right, point to the wall in which they take the step sideways.)
When they hear the word “Good,” they step in the other direction.
The students in the line facing them should do the same, (right or left), but because they are facing the other students, they will be going in the opposite direction. Point out the correct walls to them.
Stand in front of them with your eyes shut. Say “Nice!” a couple of times, then “Good!” a couple of times. Then say “Nice!” very quickly three times. Say “Good!” very quickly twice. Mix it all up until you’re not sure how many times you’ve said “Nice!” and “Good!” The assistant can help them get to the right wall. When both teams have reached the wall, the game is over.
Did you get confused about which way to go? Life is confusing sometimes, especially when you are watching others who are going the opposite way.
If your friends went the wrong way accidentally, did that get you going the wrong way, too? In life, you have to be careful to listen to your conscience and your inner soul about which way to go. Looking at others can make you make wrong choices like the Israelites.
When your friends banged into you, did that get you going the wrong way? That’s like when friends put pressure on you if they’re doing the wrong thing. You want to keep your mind fixed on “good!” It takes practice!
