Making Things Practical

It’s easy to speak of spiritual concepts and never let the rubber hit the road when it comes to our understanding of God. It is important to relate things as simply as possible. However, simple and simplistic are not the same thing. Plain, everyday language with illustrations from the students’ lives makes the lessons more appealing and more understandable. Young people are very intuitive and willing to go where you lead them, as long as you know where you are headed first. A good rule is this: if it is hard to explain, you probably haven’t spent enough time interpreting the concepts.
