Looking for an “easy” lesson the week after Thanksgiving?  This one is for you!

Should we really only say, “Thank You,” once a year?  Here is an easy video that is funny and gets students thinking about those “things we should say.”   It also could be used as a “pick me up,” for your team.

TELL:

Students you are going to watch a video on the “20 Things We Should Say More Often.”

GIVE:

Students pen and paper to write down the top 3 things they agree we should be saying.

Show the Video:

After the laughing has subsided :) Ask these questions:

  • What were your top three statements you thought about?
  • Why?
  • Why do you think we need to say that more often?

Then Say:

Psalm 19:14 tells us, “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”

Ask:

  • How could this verse have to do with this video?
  • Why do we care if our words and thoughts please God?
  • Why does what we say matter to God?

Go around the room or your small groups and have each student share.

Then have students come up with a “Top 10 List” of their own.

  • What are the “Top 10 Things” they personally need to say more often?

Application:

  • Pick 1 thing you will work to say more often THIS WEEK.

Follow up the following week by asking them how it went and if it changed anything at all!
