Member's Member's Bible Lesson - Wise and Foolish Builders

Bible Verse:

"For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and under-standing." Proverbs 2:6

Scripture References: Genesis 5-11 - Noah and the Ark and the Tower of Babel

Teaching Concept: When we listen to God and follow his commands we will be rewarded for our obedience, but if we don't listen to God and do what we want instead, we will suffer the consequences. Children learn more about wisdom and how they can gain wisdom through the examples of more wise and foolish builders.

 

 

Build Towers

Place your children in groups of three or four and give each group the same amount of blocks. Tell them to work together to build the highest tower they can with the blocks. When the groups are done building compare the towers to see which group made the tallest tower.

Game 1 - Building a Tower Game

Object of the game - to build the tallest tower

How to Play - Divide your children up into teams. Place some blocks or paper cups in the center of a table. Take turns asking the groups of children questions. If the team answers a question correctly, they get to add a block to their tower. If they are incorrect, they must remove a block or cup from their tower. If the tower falls over, they may not rebuild it, but start from what is left standing.

If you have older children, you can divide your children up into two teams and see which team can build the tallest tower by answering questions correctly.

Listen and Do - Listen to whom? Do what? The Bible tells us to listen to God's words and do what they say.

"Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:" Matthew 7:24

Look - Look for what? - The Bible tells us if we should look for wisdom like we search for treasure.

'Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hidden treasures;" Proverbs 2:3-4

Fear - Fear who? - The Bible tells us that we should fear God. When we respect God we can become wise.

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1:7
