Oh Boy!

Anybody have any advice for keeping children on task during bible study?  Tonight we were learning about how God keeps His promises.  And somehow along the way, I ended up being drilled about how it’s possible for God to hear everything and be everywhere at once and how it is possible that He has always been.  And if God is Jesus and Jesus was born to a woman, then how is it possible that He has always been…


So many questions…good questions, but not related to the topic we’re supposed to be covering…and I’m trying to answer the questions as best I can while trying to steer us back to how God keeps His promises.

So, I realize that they’re asking questions and that’s a great problem to have, but still, we gotta focus here, people!

Any suggestions for me out there?

    I would suggest having them write their questions down that have nothing to do with the lesson and putting them in a jar. Then you could tell them on a certain day you will answer two questions – like Friday is answer questions day or something this way you have time to really give them a good answer in case you don’t have an answer right then and just explain to them that they need to stay on task about what you are learning today.

    I think it’s great that they are asking all of those questions!! And if they’re asking questions, or really curious about something….then I say veer from the topic of the day and have discussion….it could be the Holy Spirit at work??

      Very true Christy…I hadn’t thought of it that way, but you’re right. Maybe I just need to set aside more time for bible study so we have enough time to answer all those questions.

    I was thinking that you could write down their questions and then use them for future lessons. You could say something like….”That’s a great question, but not what we’re talking about today. Let me write it down and we’ll discuss it soon.” Or something like that.

    That would give you time to do a little research and be better equipped to answer the “hard to answer” questions.
