Answers from Sunday
Well, I was so proud of the answers my students gave on Sunday to what I thought was a pretty deep question for their age group (7th-12th grade girls).


In my Sunday School class our lesson is about defending our faith and how to witness to other people.  There are Jr. High and High School girls in this class, so they go to a total of 4 different schools.  There have been a lot of lunch table discussion lately over the Bible and I was thankful that our lesson was giving these girls some real life tools to use when talking to their friends about their faith.


I began the lesson with this example, "If I had an envelope in my hand and all you had to do was ask a question about your future and it would be answered . . . . would you open it?"  I was so anxious to see what they would say.  Some said yes, there were some who wanted to know if they were going to have any children in the future.  Some said no, that they would be fearful that if they saw the answer it would somehow mess it up.  When I was in high school if someone had offered me that same deal, I would have taken it.  I do love surprises, but I have so much curiosity I would have to open it.


So last Sunday morning I asked Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?


One student's response was especially mature, she said that no one is good.  I really liked that answer.  None of us are really good enough, and God doesn't look at it that way.  I told her that was an excellent way to show God's standard of perfection and how we all need Jesus because none of us are perfect. Romans 3:23


Another student answered that she thought God was trying to teach you something, when these things happen.  Another good answer, especially from a Jr. High girl.


Another student said that when you learn from these things God may find a way to use you in the future because you have been through this and you will be able to help another person get through the same situation.  


These are all such great answers.  I just had to share them with you . . .and see my quiet time was better and these girls practically taught the lesson themselves.  I tried to tell you that Quiet Time was the answer to a better life.
