Run to the finish

Read 2 Timothy 4:7-8 from the Bible.

Looking back on his life, Paul is confident he has done what God has asked of him. He now looks forward to receiving his heavenly reward. Our encouragement comes from knowing that we too can receive this reward if we keep the faith throughout our own ‘race’.

Set up an obstacle course in your home, garden or public space using everyday items. After you’ve each had a turn, talk about which bits you found easy or more difficult and why.

Give each other advice on how to improve. Have another go and see if you can apply what you learned.

What do you think Paul learned on his life ‘race’ by keeping the faith?

Why might keeping the faith be important in our race of life?

Converse com Deus: Pray for God’s help to keep the faith and finish the race.

Know your reward

Read 2 Timothy 4:7-8 again.

Use household items to make a crown. What do you think the word ‘righteousness’ means? Look up a definition.

Why do you think this is a reward Paul is excited about? Talk about what Paul might have done to deserve such a reward.

Place your crown somewhere in your home to remind you of the rewards God gives us when we ‘keep the faith’.

Read about Niel Louw and Elliot Mujaji.

Converse com Deus: Pray for teamwork, communication, encouragement and deepening faith to be the rewards we seek within our homes and families.

The sprints

There can be more than one winner! Niel Louw and Elliot Mujaji were competitors in the 100 meters. They were competing at the 2000 Sydney Paralympics because they had both suffered arm amputations in electrical accidents when they were younger. As they rebuilt their lives they became good sprinters and rose up in international competition. Niel went into the competition as the favorite but in the heats had a leg cramp, came last in his race, and missed the final. Elliot ran his heat and won. He was ranked third for the final. The final was a photo finish, but Elliot triumphed as the world’s fastest T46 sprinter.

What is most surprising, however, is that while these were important and life defining races in the world’s toughest competition, both men considered that the greatest prize was still to come. They will both be winners in the greatest race of life, finishing with eternity with God as their prize.

The longest line

Divide into two teams. Allow two minutes for everyone to gather 10 objects (clothing, books, shoes, and so on). Each team then has to make the longest line they can with their objects. The objects must touch end to end. Which team can make the longest line?

Can you go even further? What else can you use to make your line longer without running to gather more objects? Be creative!

Dica de saúde para viver muito

Keep your mind active. Keep learning new things: new sports, new ideas, new skills. Read widely. Learn formally or informally. Be intentional and share what you are learning.
