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?
与上帝聊天: Pray for God’s help to keep the faith and finish the race.
What do you know?
Give everyone a pen and paper.
Play three rounds. Give as many answers as you can in 45 seconds for each round:
Things you might find at a sports competition
Things you know about God
Share your responses.
The winner is the person with the most correct answers.
反映: Which round was easier? Why? What did you discover about God?

Drop to the ground
Run around the room or yard as you do this activity.
One person is the leader. When the leader shouts out a body part such as elbow, knee, back, or ear, everyone must put that body part on the ground.
Why do people like to win?

Don’t forget to use a timer!
Compare your score to last season.

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.
与上帝聊天: Pray for teamwork, communication, encouragement and deepening faith to be the rewards we seek within our homes and families.
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.
第 2 天： 玩
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!
第 3 天： 暖身
One person sits on the floor with legs out to the front and arms out to the side. The others jump over the arm, the legs and the second arm. Everybody jumps two rounds and changes places, so everybody gets to jump.
What’s your favorite memory to share with other people?
更深入: Why do humans need to share what we’ve done or where we’ve been with others?

Share your experience
Read 2 Timothy 4:7-8.
Why is it important that Paul reminds us his heavenly reward is available to us too?
On cards, sticky notes or slips of paper, write down some simple sentences of encouragement, a scripture verse or a faith experience that you’d like to share with someone. Deliver to a neighbor or friend.
与上帝聊天: Pray for opportunities to share experiences of faith and the good news with others in your community. Pray they will be open and willing to listen and positively impacted as a result.

Divide this week’s Bible verse, 2 Timothy 4:7-8, into six parts and write each part on a different piece of paper.
One person hides the papers around the house or yard. The rest of the family races to find the papers. Combine the papers to make the verse and say it together.
