1 Corinthians 14:33 says this: “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,….” Our kids need to know that, in His time, God will always work to order things for their good and take away confusion. Play this Bible memory verse game called “Mismatched Messes” to help them know this truth.
Life has a way of throwing a lot of curve balls our way, but isn’t it wonderful to know that God is not surprised by any mishaps or mayhem in our lives? Not only that, because “…God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,….” we can believe that He will bring clarity in all our confusing situations and in the confusing situations of the whole church.
1 Corinthians 14:33 is a Bible verse that many Christians have memorized over the years and your kids should memorize it too. Here is a fun Bible memory verse game to make the learning of this great scripture even more fun. I call it “Mismatched Messes.” Follow the directions below to learn how to play the game.
How to Play the Bible Memory Verse Game for “God is Not the Author of Confusion”
- Help the children learn and memorize the verse by saying it over and over again many times. You might even want to put the verse to some music to make it easier. Check out some of my other ideas for memorizing Bible verses by clicking HERE.
- After your children have some level of comfort with knowing the verse, it’s time to test them. Divide your class into 2 teams. Have one child go out of the room where they cannot see or hear what you are doing. Have the rest of the class mismatch 5 things in the room. For example, kids might trade shoes or glasses or other articles of clothing. You can also rearrange furniture. Put a chair upside down or face a table a different way. Get creative.
- Have the sequestered child come back in. In order to play the game, he must say the Bible verse correctly. If he does, he now has 30 seconds to figure out as many of the 5 “mismatches” as he can. For every mismatch he gets correct, his team gets 100 points. But for every mismatch he DOES NOT get, the other team gets 100 points for each of the incorrect guesses.
- Play back and forth between teams until all have had a chance to play at least one time. Have FUN!
