Take turns wrapping each other in tissue paper. The rules are that the person being wrap can’t talk, move, nor give suggestions on how the person who is wrapping could do it better; the one being wrapped must be still. Of course, the one being wrapped tried to talk, move or give suggestion, but we will continue to remind them that they could only be still.
Once they were wrapped, we said it was OK to bust out of the wrapping.
We start the lesson by asking, if it was hard to be still; if so, why?
Some of the answers were because I felt they were not doing it right, the tissue kept falling because they were putting it on wrong, it was just hard and they wanted to move around.
Read the following scripture:
Sometimes it can feel like a situation is unfair and you are tempted to argue, get angry or fight back; or like if you tell the truth about something and get in trouble for it. Well God says to “Be Sill”, don’t fight or get mad, just do what is right and it pays off. Maybe you got in trouble but your parents still trust you. Being still is hard, doing what is right is hard; however, trust God, He will take care of you.
Weekly focus: Do the right thing and then be still.
