What Would You Do?

You have one card for each student. On each card you write something gross to do (I used Fear Factor to come up with these ideas), or very dangerous. Each card MUST be different! Under the description of something to do put the numbers 1-7. Hand out the cards to the students. Tell them to write down their answer without no one seeing their answer (no real reason, it just adds mystery to their game).

Question One: Would you do the thing on your card for a cookie?
Question Two: Would you do the thing on your card for $100?
Question Three: Would you do the thing on your card for a Free vacation?
Question Four: Would you do the thing on your card for a new wardrobe?
Question Five: would you do the thing on your card for a new car?
Question Six: would you do the thing on your card for $1,000,000?
Queston Seven: Would you do the thing on your card to recieve God’s Salvation?

Have everyone tell what was on their card and how they answered the questions. It will generate some laughs at some responses.
Hopefully everyone has put “Yes” on the last question. Then you can say “Isn’t it wonderful that we DO NOT have to do these things in order to get God’s Salvation?” It really makes teens think about what they would do in certain situations and it hits home how simple obtaining salvation really is. (You can use as many questions as you want.)
