The Bible Focus Games are a series of three (3) games including – Giving Our Voice to: The Fruit of the Spirit, Psalms of Praise, and The Ten Commandments. Each game has words from the Bible boldly printed on the face of 2”x3.5” cards (a total of 121 cards per game).
The Scriptural foundation of the games is the Parable of the Sower taught by Jesus, and special game activities include making plants, reaping harvests, and reading Bible verses out loud. The best setup is to divide players (Kids old enough to read Bible verses out loud up through Senior Citizens) into two teams with a total of one, two or three on each team. The purpose of the games is not to test one’s knowledge of the Bible but to provide an opportunity for players to think (or meditate) on what the Bible says.
All three games pretty much follow the same order of play and have the same rules which means that when you learn to play one game you will know how to play the other games as well. Players will experience competition, teamwork, the value of patience and alertness, reading Bible Verses out loud, growing in an understanding of the relationship between sowing and reaping, etc.
When one of the games was taught to 6th-12th graders in a local Christian School, some unsolicited comments from students were: “I really like this game; this game is awesome; this is the best game I have ever played.” No two rounds are ever the same, guaranteed; and when the game is over no one will ever say it was a boring game. The first team earning 500 points wins the game (300 for shorter games) but everyone really wins for God said regarding his Word, …it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).
Family is important, and I believe Christian families and friends getting together for special times of fun and fellowship is very important. Sadly, it does not happen as often now as in times past. I’m hoping that these special games will become a means of bringing families, kids, and adults together once again and in a setting where the seed of God’s Word is sown into the hearts and minds of many people.
1. Introducing Game #1 – Giving our Voice to The Fruit of the Spirit
But the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness, temperance (self-control):
against such there is no law.
Can Bible verses printed on 2″ x 3.5″ cards and all related to the nine components of the Fruit of he Spirit open up a new opportunity for believers
…to think more deeply on God’s Word;
…to learn more about living a fruitful Christian life;
…to experience joy and fellowship with family and friends;
…to reach out to non-believers?
The Fruit of the Spirit is not a game. but Giving our Voice to: The Fruit of the Spirit is a game that will give those who play the opportunity to think on (meditate upon) the Fruit of the Spirit.
2. Introducing Game #2 – Giving our Voice to Psalms of Praise
The Psalms are not a game, but Giving Our Voice to Psalms of Praise is an exciting and enjoyable game that can help us think about (or meditate upon) some of the Psalms of Praise.
The face of the cards display the following Psalms of Praise: 1. “Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 129:2)
2. “O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker” (Psalm 95:6).
3. “O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together” (Psalm 34:3).
4. “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High” (Psalm 19:1):
5. “I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalm 34:1).
6. “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” (Psalm 139:14).
7. “Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool: for he is holy” (Psalm 99:5).
8. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God” (Psalm 20:7).
9. “In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever” (Psalm 34:8).
10. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork” (Psalm 19:1).
11. “I will sing unto the LORD because he hath dealt bountifully with me” (Psalm 13:6).
3. Introducing Game #3 – Giving our Voice to The Ten Commandments
God’s Commandments are not a game, but Giving Our Voice to The Ten Commandments is an exciting and enjoyable game that can help us think about (or meditate upon) God’s Commandments.
The face of the cards display the following commandments:
1st Commandment – Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2nd Commandment – Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
3rd Commandment – Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

The Great Commandments – Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets (Matt. 22:37-40).
The games may come with a different box than the one pictured.
