8. Activity

Play this game along with a quiz based on the video

Supplies:

1. piece of paper (1 per person)

2. tape

3. A makeshift target (make your own or print this one)

Instructions for a parent to read: In this video, we learned about the General Epistles. Let’s play a game called “Tacky Tongue!” As we answer questions, each person can take a piece of paper, roll it into a ball and put some tape on it with the sticky side out. At the end of our questions, we can take turns tossing the tape balls onto the Tacky Tongue Target. (If you don’t have tape, just put a target in the middle of the floor and throw paper balls onto the floor target.)

Questions: 

1. In the book of Hebrews, we are reminded of the definition of faith. Look in Hebrews 11:1. What is that definition of faith? What does this mean? (“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Faith is believing in things we haven’t seen YET.)

 

2. Sunday School Lady gave us examples of people in the Bible who had faith. Can you name a few of these people? (EXAMPLES: Abraham and Sarah, Moses, David, Samuel)

 

3. Which General Epistle is considered the “Proverbs of the New Testament” because it is about wisdom? (James)

 

4. James talks a lot about controlling your tongue because the words you say can change the direction of your life in the same way a tiny rudder can turn a _____. (Giant Ship; Take a moment to close your eyes and think of a time this week that it was hard for you to control the things you said. Share if you feel comfortable.)

 

5. James says we are to be “doers” of the word, not just “hearers” of the word. James is saying that following Jesus – believing in Him – will change your life. The Holy Spirit will help you develop the Fruit of the Spirit. What is the big word for this? (Sanctification) 

 

6. True or False: James reminds us that we’re not accepted by God because of what we do. We are accepted by God because of what Jesus did. (True)
