Form groups of three. Have one person in each group close his or
her eyes. Have the other two take the person at least 20 feet away
from their group.
Say: You have one minute to get back to your
seat with your eyes closed. Your friends in your group will guide
you, but listen well.
The "blind" people can't be led by the hand; they must follow
only their group members' instructions. Play three times to let
each group member have a turn being the blind one. Then ask: How
easy or difficult was it to listen to your group members' voices?
How did other people's instructions affect you? What techniques did
you use to listen well?
Say: Listen to this story about a little boy
who learned to listen well -- and heard God's voice.
Read aloud 1 Samuel 3:1-11.
Ask: Think of the techniques we used in our
game to listen well. How can we use some of those same techniques
to listen well to God?
