I just finished checking out another great resource from Kurt Johnston, the jr high pastor at Saddleback Church. It’s called ‘
10 Minute Moments – God’s Story,’ and it’s a 31 day devotional for middle school students that takes them on a journey through the whole Bible. It starts with creation and ends at Revelation, hitting on 31 one key passages and events over the course of the Bible.
Here’s what I really like about 10 Minute Moments – God’s Story; the format is great for students. He gives suggested amounts of time for each section of the devotional; a couple minutes for reading the scripture, five minutes for considering questions that provoke deeper thought and application on the passage and several minutes for prayer, with suggestions for prayer topics based on the verses they’ve read. There’s also a space for notes and further exploration if students want. I love that it’s not intimidating at all for someone looking to build a quiet time habit, the language is great for middle schoolers without going simple, and it has really relevant content for kids in our world today. Definitely worth checking out.
