We’re learning that God’s Word shows us what to do. It’s kind of like following the directions to build something.

  • Tell about something you wouldn’t want to try to make if you didn’t have directions.

Sounds like you all do a good job following the directions. I wonder if our friend Carl will follow the directions, too.

  • Why was following the directions so hard for Carl?
  • Why is following the Bible hard sometimes?
  • What can go wrong if we don’t do what God’s Word shows us to do?

When Carl didn’t follow the directions, he got stuck in the Awesome Andy Show! Good thing Bill and Violet were there to help him. God’s Word shows us what to do because God knows the best way to live. When we follow his Word, we’ll live our best life.
