Take a moment to look at these pictures:


How is life like a journey?  How do these items all fit into the journey of life?  


For example, the road map signifies the decisions we have to make to get us where we want to go.  Sometimes we make wrong turns but it is possible to turn around and head the right way again.


  • What about the car?

  • Food

  • Bag

  • Book

  • First aid kit




Exploring Scripture


Due to it’s size, the Bible can be intimidating.  Open your Bible to the table of contents.  The word “Bible” actually comes from a word meaning “Book of Books.”  The Bible is a collection of smaller books that can be read one at a time.  


Use your table of contents to determine how many books are in each section, the Old and New Testaments, and in the entire Bible.  


Can you name all sixty-six Bible books by memory?  


Learning the Bible’s structure makes it easier to read, too!  


When you are reading your Bible look for S-P-A-C-E:

S= Sins to confess

P= Promises to claim

A=Attitudes to adjust

C= Commands to obey

E= Examples to follow
