Why do you worship?, Exodus 25:1-31:18

I thought of an interesting way to open the lesson, "Why do you worship?", which is based on Exodus 25:1-31:18.

The nut of the lesson is that God wants believers to worship him in meaningful ways. He didn't just leave Israelite worship practices up for grab. There was meaning in the tabernacle construction and ordinances.

To help members focus on the idea of "make meaningful", introduce the lesson by having them unscramble the following sentences:

1. present Regular is among us worship God shows:
2. During Lord helps the His us instructions worship understand:
3. regular Lord offerings Giving the pleases:

Here are the answers (which correspond to the lesson conclusions):

1. Regular worship shows God is present among us
2. During worship the Lord helps us understand His instructions
3. Giving regular offerings pleases the Lord
