2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
Today we spent a freakishly long day melting wax. T and I were prepping for the youth curriculum and probably melted down 500 candles. Okay, not really that many–but a lot. The windows in the kitchen were coated in steam and I think that everything I serve for dinner for the next few weeks will be the slightest bit shiny and wax-like. I’m sure it will be an improvement over my normal meals.
While I don’t want to give too much away, given that some of my youth might be reading this blog (yeah, right) the whole project with the wax is to teach a bible lesson.
My husband has commented more than once, that I’m spending a lot of time putting this together. A lot of time. Every activity has a scripture attached to it–yeah, you try finding scripture relating to wax–that is relevant and meaningful (hopefully).
There is a saying, “To teach is to learn twice,” and I have to say, it has been true for this exercise. I have really picked up a lot of knowledge about the bible while writing this material. I’ve had to test theories and ideas and learn who said what and what was going on when they said it. It really has brought me closer to God. It is my deepest prayer that I am, able to teach the youth so that they “may be competent, equipped for every good work.”
