Making Lessons Fun

(Sir Richard Branson, Billionaire owner of Virgin Airlines, among other things, poses with a sleeping airline employee)

When I see a funny picture like this online, I don’t stop at just thinking, “that’s a funny picture.” I think, I need to save that and use it in a lesson some day. For an image like this, I might print it out or save it on my phone to show on the TV screen during a lesson. I might use it to point out sometimes we miss great things God wants to do through us because we’re sleeping (or doing anything else that distracts us) instead of paying attention to what he’s┬ádoing right in front of us. Illustrations like this make lessons fun, helps students pay attention, and hopefully helps students remember to live out how they get challenged in Life Group.

Long View Of Life – Finances

This is a video I’ll show to my students because I want to prepare them for success not only in having a thriving relationship with God, but also to have a long view of life; this includes how they use money. If they can learn to use their money well, they will be free to serve others for God and also be able to be financially generous for building the Kingdom of God. I don’t want them hampered by a pile of debt.
