What's Wrong?

Bible Game for Children's Ministry 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness" 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV).

My husband and I play a game we call What's Wrong? with a mixed-aged Sunday school class. We take 12 popular Scriptures (you could use more depending on the amount of time you have, we only have one hour). We misspell names, omit one word, switch the words, or add words, etc., to each Scripture verse, and then type them onto index cards and number them. We then divide the class into groups and give them 40 minutes to find what is wrong with the Scriptures, and then correct them. For extra points, tell them to state where the Scripture comes from. Leave one or two correct just to throw them off. They must only work on one at a time. 

It was fun and we learned so much. There were so many Scriptures that we often misquote. We learned the importance of every word in God's word! Allow 10 to 15 minutes for discussion.

PS. Make sure everyone has the same type of Bible and make sure you have an answer key.

Editor's note: For an alternative way to play, write the Scripture references on the board for the kids to match them to the Scripture verses before correcting them. Also, don't miss our Bible Card game, Bible Stack-O!
