Using popular games as a metaphor for our temporal lives, this six-session small group Bible study, When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box, by John Ortberg, neatly sorts out what’s fleeting and what’s permanent in God’s kingdom. Today is the day you choose…which game you want to win…which prize you want to collect…which priorities you want to set. It’s a thrill to win at checkers or Clue or Trivial Pursuit. You sweep aside the other players and you “own” the board. It’s also a thrill to win a promotion at work … the new house you wanted … that sports car you’ve always eyed. But just like the game cards, the tokens, and the timer, those prizes are temporary. When the game is over, they all go back in the box. Games can cast a powerful spell, says bestselling author John Ortberg. But the wisest player remembers that the game is always going to end. So when everything goes back in the box, you’ll have made what is temporary a servant to what is eternal, and you’ll leave this life knowing you’ve achieved the only victory that matters. When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box will teach you to: * Live passionately and boldly * Learn how to be active players in the game that pleases God * Find your true mission and offer your best * Fill each square on the board with what matters most * Seek the richness of being instead of the richness of having This Participant Guide is designed for use with the companion DVD (sold separately). When used together, they work as a powerful catalyst for spiritual growth. Sessions include: 1. When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box2. Keeping Score Where It Really Counts3. Resign as Master of the Board4. Calling or Comfort? Choose Your Moves Wisely5. Playing the Game with Greatness and Grace6. The King Has One More Move
