DetailsWhen talking about leadership in God’s Kingdom, it’s especially easy for students to think it’s their job to do things for God. That kind of reasoning fits neatly into how the rest of their lives are organized—chores for parents, homework for teachers, practice for coaches, entertainment for “me,” etc.
But God doesn’t need students to do Kingdom work for him, he wants to do it with them. This lesson will show how that simple change in perspective can change the way they relate to God. The example of sawdust in a car-engine shows how living life with God is more sustainable and enjoyable than striving to complete a to-do list for him. Lastly, a short activity will challenge students to examine their schedule and live their entire lives with God.
