How do we measure the world against God's word?


: paper, pencils/pens, scissors, Bible


Verses: Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, Luke 4:1-13, Proverbs 20:10
Goal: Today we studied Jesus being tempted in the desert by Satan. Not only did Jesus use Scriptures as a shield against Satan's temptation, He also used them as a standard to measure the devil's words. This was especially true when the devil (mis)quoted scripture.
Set-up/Introduction: Have the kids trace one of their feet on a piece of paper and cut it out. Depending on the number of kids, this could be done individually or in groups.
Activity: Have each person or group measure the length of the room with the foot they cut out and record their findings. (The teacher might want to do this also to provide a bigger contrast.)

Ask why the differences in measurements? Didn't we all measure in feet?
