Sometimes Biblical stories just get a bad rap…young and old alike want to hit the snooze button just looking at the Word of God. Yet there are so many amazing stories, more thrilling than an action movie and more dramatic than the steamiest soap opera. All of these stories also happen to encompass amazing lessons and truths of God. This lesson covers insightful highlights included in the book of Ruth. This “Part two” side of things focuses on the significance of Ruth’s obedience to God and what it produced, in contrast with the consequences of sin in other parts of the Old Testament.
Lesson focus: God wants us to be loyal and faithful to our friends and family; even when things seem challenging, He will work things out for good.
Materials - Magnet - Strips - Gum - Candy
Materials Needed: Magnet strips; bubble gum (or other sticky candy); verses and captions; colorful paper and decorative materials.
Lesson Opening: Whose Shoe’s Whose? Start with a scrambled up game…in this part of the story, one element has to do with taking off a sandal to seal a deal. Invite students to remove one shoe. Turn off the lights and have all students place their shoes around the room in somewhat discreet spots. When the lights come back on, have students look for a shoe that is not their own, and find the owner. When they locate the shoe owner, they are to discuss the question of what it means to be loyal or faithful. Also, brainstorm characteristics that make a good quality friend, and talk about their own best friends and what makes them special. These talking points can be adjusted based on age/interests.
