(Psalm 1) Righteous Living

Bible Point

When you live a righteous life, you grow towards God. When you live
a wicked life, you move away from God.


Spend a few minutes talking about the meaning of righteous and wicked living.

Set Up: The teacher stands at one end of the playing area. Players line up at the start
line at the opposite end of the playing area. Before play begins, tell the players
the teacher represents God.

How To Play: When teacher holds his or her thumbs up (represents righteous living) the players move by walking, running, skipping, etc. toward the teacher. When the
teacher holds thumbs down (represents wicked living) the players must freeze. If
the teacher sees a player(s) move when thumbs are down, that player(s) must
return to the start line. Play continues until a player tags the teacher. The first
player to tag the teacher takes the teacher’s place in the next round of play. Play
as long as time allows.
