Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
The Middle School Teacher's Guide is an excellent tool that provides stimulating lessons designed for a wide variety of students. Middle school probably represents the most diverse age group you'll find in terms of personality and cognitive ability.
A reflective "Teacher Devotional" prepares your heart and mind for the study, a short "Understanding the Bible" article helps you gain perspective on the Scripture, and a section on "Classroom Tips" makes your class time run more smoothly. There's also a pre-session activity for students who arrive early to class.
Each four-step lesson plan starts with a "Lesson Focus" that is applied in each step. Then, you have an easy-to-follow guide that will take you step-by-step through the lesson.
