The Live for God Bible Study started today. It's actually going on right now, and they're in my classroom. Their key verse today is Philippians 2.14, with the title-"God wants us to be minty fresh!" And my boy, Malcolm, is reading Proverbs 4 right now.
I'm so proud of our girls, Crystal, Danielle and Victoria, who are leading. They're so stinkin' awesome! I love this! And I'm listening to one of them trying to convict the kids of gossiping…"Don't lie, I know you've gossiped!" Wow, this is great…I mean, they've got a long way to go in leading a Bible study, but this is their first one:) (It is kind of hard not to step in though.)
Now they're instructing the kids about the 30 Second Kneeldown, where they kneel at their lockers for 30 seconds in the morning to pray. "If they ask you what you're doing, tell them you're praying for them! And do it!"
Memory verse time-pick a verse to write on your card and memorize the Scripture this week, but first you have to figure out what it means.
"Who's going to work on this? Be honest! Be honest with your parents! Be honest with us!"
Oh….I could go on, but I won't. I'm pumped for this group of kids. I truly hope that the fire that I see in the leaders catches flame in the rest of the group, and I pray that it grows. They're so cool. =)
