Suddenly Gaga Ball Gave A New Perspective


Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, 
But happy is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18

Gaga ball is a fast paced and simple to understand sport played in an octagonal pit. With a few simple instructions both kids and adults can enjoy a variation of dodgeball that everyone will enjoy. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to play a few games of Gaga ball. The pit filled with kids and the energy level went through the roof as the ball was put in play. Each game ended in applause and the kids had a great time. Then I noticed something that gave me a new perspective on Proverbs 29:18. I watched the game dissolve into complete chaos as the adults went inside. The rules didn’t change, the same kids were in the same pit, but without leadership the kids began to argue about every play and when kids refused to leave the pit the game imploded. After watching this for a moment, I simply walked back towards the pit and suddenly the game continued as before.

Where in your life do you find chaos? Could a few words from a trusted leader get you on the right path? Take a step today in the right direction and find a mentor!

Blast Off! The Outer Limits

Blast OffWe are in the 6th week of the KidSpring Series Blast Off and I must say that our kids have been loving every lesson!  Throughout this series we are learning different promises of God and how they were true in the Bible, are true today, and will be true in the future!  The kids have enjoyed the crazy skits, and creative Bible teaching, and the coaches have had a lot of great conversations with the kids about the Promises of God.
Here is the scope of what we have and will learn:
God is a promise keeper! Abraham
God Promises to watch over me! Jacob
God Promises to help me in times of trouble! Daniel
God Promises to teach me His ways! Jonah
God Promises to love me forever! Jesus and Peter
God Promises that He is in control! Out of Egypt
God Promises to hear my prayers! A Wise King
God Promises to reward me! Joseph and Brothers

The memory verse we have been focusing on is Psalm 145:13 (NLT). “For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps His promises; He is gracious in all He does.”
