Needed: Something with instructions (a game, a model, a recipe, etc.) and a Bible
Show students your item and ask if any of them know how to [play, build, make] it.
Ask, if you don't know how to do something, what could you do to learn?
You could read the instructions, couldn't you? (Pull out the instructions.) Instructions tell us how to do things the right way.
What about in life? Are there any instructions we can read to tell us how to live our lives the right way?
(Show students a Bible.) The Bible is God's instructions to us for how we should live. It tells us how much God loves us and it tells us all the right things we are supposed to do in life.
(Read 2 Timothy 3:14-16.)
Just like we needed instructions for _____, the Bible is our instructions for life.
Let's pray about that.
Sample prayer: Father God, we thank You for giving us the Bible so that we can know the right way to live. We pray that You will help us to follow the Bible's instructions. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
