    The answer to question 6 on the study guide leaves a little to be desired. Can we flesh that answer out a little bit?

      We need the Bible in order to replenish and to refuel. Just like how food can help us prepare and sustain our body for difficult tasks, or just in our day to day lives, the Bible can also help us prepare for the day, or heal after a difficult one.

    Wanted to share what I did as a hook/game to lead into the study:
    I set up a tray in the room with lots of different random items on it. It was in the room for a good 15 minutes while the students had snacks. They could choose to go look at it or not. It was in plain view for anyone to see. (My thinking is that propbably most would not pay attention to it, even though it was right under their nose)

    This is exactly what happened. After snacks, etc. We took the tray out of plain view and told the students they had a minute to write down what they could remember seeing on the try. Most students did not know what was on it. Or were very unfamiliar with the items. They had lots of time to look at it, etc. but never took the time to.

    This is a picture we can refer back to in this study. We have lots of time to make to to spend with God in his Word. He is right there waiting to spend time wiht us. But we tend stay focused on other things going on around us, just like the students did with the tray in the room.

    If we don’t take time to spend with God, we won’t know Him, His goodness, His gresat love for us and all the many attributes that are life changing in our lives. This is similar to how the students did’t know anything about what was on the tray.

    Hope this is helpful. 🙂
