I love how the Bible can be so visual as well as practical. as well as what can be more practical than the clothes we wear? However, the Bible isn’t concerned which we are wearing Gucci or Versace. God’s Word encourages us to put on much better attire such as compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness as well as patience. If you don’t believe me, read Colossians 3:12 which says, “As God’s chosen people, holy as well as dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness as well as patience.” Why not try which fun Bible school activity to help your kids memorize which great verse? I call which “Clothe Yourselves”.
Here’s what you do:
which game takes some preparation, yet your kids will appreciate the time you spent. First, you want to make a large die. I went to my local box store as well as bought a 7″ cube. I then went on my computer as well as created some nice colorful numbers, 1 through 6, as well as attached them on each side. (Trust me. You will use which die for many different games. The kids love the big, fun size.) Next, gather 2 sets of the following items of clothes: 2 hats, 2 shirts, 2 shorts as well as 2 pairs of shoes. I went to my local thrift store as well as bought oversized items for real cheap. Next, attach the following cards to each piece of clothing: “compassion” goes on the hats, “kindness” goes on the shirts, “humility” goes on the shorts as well as “gentleness” goes on one pair of the shoes as well as “patience” goes on the some other. I put each set of clothes in separate buckets. Finally, you might want to write on a board of some kind the following: One equals compassion, two equals kindness, three equals humility, four equals gentleness, all 5 equals patience as well as 6 equals Free Piece. You are at which point ready to play.
Divide your class into 2 teams. Pick one child through each team to be the one who can be dressed. Have them stand in front of the class. at which point say the following: Name some brand names of clothes which you actually like. (Wait for responses.) Why do you think those clothes are so cool? (Wait for responses.) Did you guys know which God cares about how you clothe yourself? (Wait for response.) Well, believe which or not, He does. He cares a lot. as well as I am going to prove which to you. Listen to Colossians 3:12 which says, “As God’s chosen people, holy as well as dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness as well as patience.” I don’t think you’ll find any of these clothes at the mall, yet you can find them by getting to know God as well as by becoming more like Him. Today, we are going to memorize which Bible verse by playing a fun game called “Clothe Yourselves.” Here’s how we play. We have two teams as well as one through each team will eventually be dressed in all of the clothes which you see here. (Hold up each article of clothing. The kids will get a kick out of seeing how big they are.) One person through each team will get a chance to come up as well as say the Bible verse. If he does so correctly, he will get to roll which die. Whatever number he lands on, can be the article of clothing he gets to dress his teammate in. If a six can be rolled, you get to choose a piece which can be not being worn yet. If you do not say the verse correctly, you sit down as well as the play goes to the next team. The first team to get their teammate dressed can be the winner. Let’s have some fun!
