This is a cool way to get the kids to look into the Bible and have fun doing it. Someone starts by looking up a favorite scripture and then writing it down on a 3×5 index card. They then give it to someone else and now that person is it. That person has ’til the end of the day to then tag 2 other people with their own scriptures they have looked up and written down. You cannot just turn around and hand out the one you got… that’s yours to keep. The object is to get the kids to look up scriptures on their own.
It can get addictive. You really need to be prepared each day with scriptures already written. If you have already been tagged that day you don’t have to hand out more, but you can. You’ll find that once it catches on, some kids won’t wait to be tagged, they will just hand them out on their own. Get creative on the cards ie; draw a small cross, use gel pens, buy different colored 3×5’s etc. Let the students know this is not to be mean with either. There are some scriptures, given to the right person, could really cut to the core. Have them look for ones that encourage each other. After you’ve been tagged several times, you’ll have a lot of different scriptures for yourself. Carry them with you on trips or whatever. Can be great a encouragement. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11 You’re it! God bless!
