Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, this six-session DVD study neatly sorts out what's fleeting and what's permanent in God's kingdom. Being master of the board is not the point; being rich toward God is. Winning the game of life on earth is a temporary victory; loving God and other people with all our hearts is an eternal one. This study pack includes the DVD with 6 video sessions and one copy of the study guide.

Today is the day you choose . . .
. . . which game you want to win.
. . . which prize you want to collect.
. . . which priorities you want to set.
Its a thrill to win at checkers or Clue or Trivial Pursuit. You sweep aside the other players and you own the board. Its also a thrill to win a promotion at work the new house you wanted that sports car youve always eyed. But just like the game cards, the tokens, and the timer, those prizes are temporary. When the game is over, they all go back in the box.
Games can cast a powerful spell, says bestselling author John Ortberg. But the wisest player remembers that the game is always going to end. So what can we take with us to the kingdom of God? Only the love we have for Christ, the love we have for each other, and our own souls. While its not bad to be good at chess or Riskor the game of life on Earthwe cant allow it to get in the way of what really matters.
Using his humor and his genius for storytelling, Ortberg helps you focus on the real rules of the game and how to set your priorities. When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box Participants Guide with DVD helps explain how, left to our own devices, we tend to seek out worldly things, mistakenly thinking they will bring us fulfillment. But everything on Earth belongs to God. Everything we own is just on loan. And what pleases God is often 180 degrees from what we may think is important.
This pack contains one softcover Participant Guide and one DVD with six video sessions.
In the six sessions you will learn how to:
- Live passionately and boldly
- Learn how to be active players in the game that pleases God
- Find your true mission and offer your best
- Fill each square on the board with what matters most
- Seek the richness of being instead of the richness of having
You cant beat the house, notes Ortberg. Were playing our game of life on a giant board called a calendar. Time will always run out, so its a good thing to live a life that delights your Creator. When everything goes back in the box, youll have made what is temporary a servant to what is eternal, and youll leave this life knowing youve achieved the only victory that matters.
