Game - NT: Philippians - Let's shoot at the ping pong ball
Use this fun game in your programme on the book of Philippians
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 activity is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the book of Philippians: Living like Christ
What you need:
5 empty wine bottles
5 small glass bottles (beer or soft drink)
10 ping pong ball with faces drawn on them
a NERF gun or water pistol
Put the bottles on the floor in a mixed pattern of taller/shorter bottles, and put a ping pong ball on the top of each one.
Paul says that we shouldn’t think that we are more important than other people, and think of ourselves as better than them. Some of these bottles think they are more important than the others – they are the taller ones. See if you can shoot them down!!
- How do you notice if someone thinks they are more important than others?
- How can you stay humble?
- What happens when everyone thinks others are more important than themselves?
