Picture of Influence
In many of these lessons there are numerous themes that warrant illumination. While it is impossible to discuss all of them thoroughly, or even touch on some, an activity can be introduced that will help the students at least open their minds to themes that you might not have time to cover thoroughly in discussion.
In this lesson, for instance, for the generation of teens you are teaching, you need to address the power of influence, both negative and positive.
Post pictures of influential people. Ask students to identify what they think is the secret to each person’s mass appeal. Why does each of these people command attention, and why do people follow or imitate them? Finally ask: What is the secret of the Christian’s influence? How should we use that influence?
