Game - Philippians: ‘Let's shoot the ping pong ball’

A Bible game to help us reflect about being humble

In Philippians 2: 6 - 8 Paul writes about Jesus who made himself nothing. He became a servant and was even willing to die on a cross. Paul encourages us to look at Jesus and then try to become like Him.

Paul tells us that we should follow his example. Jesus didn’t consider himself more important than others, but was prepared to do things that the ‘important’ people mostly wouldn’t have done. Jesus made himself unimportant.

This is a fun game on Philippians 2 about being humble. It will help the children in your Sunday school lesson, youth ministry, Bible lesson, children’s church or children’s ministry to reflect on this powerful Bible passage.
