PICTURES FROM PROVERBS
FOR FAMILY DISCUSSIONS:
1. Introduce the illustrated proverb at breakfast and discuss its meaning.
2. Ask the family members to look for an illustration of the proverb from their activities that day.
3. At dinner discuss any illustrations of the proverb that were noticed during the day
4. Memorize the proverb together.
IN A CLASSROOM (Sunday School, Christian School, Children's Church):
(This set includes eighteen proverbs which can be taught one per week to complete one semester of school or one per Sunday to complete one-third of the calendar year.)
Before class the teacher should read the information on the back of the card and the Bible passage which illustrates the proverb.
1. Ask the question which is in large print at the top of the card as you show the picture to the class. (Note: For your convenience this question is printed on both sides of the card.) Do not announce the topic because it often gives away the answer.
2. If no one knows the answer, give the chapter number from Proverbs and have the students find the answer in their Bibles. When someone finds the answer, ask him to read the verse to the class. Explain the meaning of the analogy.
3. Ask the students to look for someone who illustrates this proverb as you read the Bible passage. Discuss their answers.
4. Ask the "Do You Remember?" questions from the back of the card.
5. Encourage the class to think of other illustrations of this proverb either from Scripture or from everyday life.
6. Memorize the proverb and display the picture as a reminder of the lesson.
AS A GAME (for two teams)
1. Select a leader and divide the rest of the players into two teams.
Each team member needs a King James Version Bible. The leader needs a chalkboard or paper and pencil to keep score.
2. Decide how many players from a team must have the answer before the team can score. (This number can be changed with each proverb, if desired.)
3. The leader reads the question which is in large print at the top of the card as he shows the picture to both teams. Everyone looks for the answer. If needed, the leader should give the chapter number where the verse is found.
4. When someone finds the answer, he puts his finger on the verse and quietly stands. The first team to have the designated number of players standing receives 100 points.
The leader should check the answers of the winning team. If anyone has an incorrect answer, the score should be given to the other team.
5. The meaning of the proverb should be briefly discussed.
6. The team that ends with the larger, core wins.
