Last night I led my SWITCHgroup of 9th grade girls at my house. After the rootbeer floats, snacks and lots and LOTS of chatter we started our study through the book of Matthew. We read through chapter 3 with ten freshman girls who have little to no Bible knowledge. We passed over this scripture:
“His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”–3:12
Winnowing fork? Threshing floor? WHAT?!
My heart is to read through the powerful Word of God with my students so they will grow a love for Christ and learn to seek Him on their own. But I find myself questioning if it is really the best use of our time together.
What do you think?
