Proverbs Five – Facing Temptation

This is a study that looks at Proverbs 5 to see why we so often give into temptation and how we should deal with temptation. It could be done as a small group Bible study or as a devotional for a larger group.

Four Keys to Successful Lesson Application

There have been many great Bible studies, many excellent object lessons, many fabulous sermon, and many thought-provoking devotionals that have great content, but they don’t accomplish anything. Why? Because they lack a quality application. What good is a Bible study on sharing the Gospel with your friends if, after you leave the building, you don’t do anything different? If a Bible study/sermon/devotional/object lesson doesn’t cause any change – it’s useless. Good application is key.

Popcorn Kernels (a.k.a. Odd or Even)

This is a simple, relatively short game that requires only some popcorn kernels. It can work good as an ice-breaker as it requires one-on-one interaction. Everyone starts the game with ten popcorn kernels in their left hand. Each person secretly chooses any number of kernels from this left hand and puts them in his right. He then approaches any other person and challenges them, asking “Odd or even?” The other person must then guess whether the number of kernels in his right hand is an odd number or an even number.
