Ask the students in your class to imagine they have a pen with only enough ink to underline one word in a verse. What would it be? Why?
I wrote Mark 1:18 on the board: "And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him." I told the kids to imagine that their pens were running out of ink, and they only had ink enough to underline one word. Which would would they choose? I asked a couple of students which word they'd underline and why. What did these men leave behind? How can we be like these disciples and follow Christ?
