Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, this six-session small group Bible study, When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box, by John Ortberg, neatly sorts out whats fleeting and whats permanent in Gods kingdom.
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 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.
When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box will teach you 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
