Welcome your students to class and invite them to participate in a discussion.

  • At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, what stories did you hear about people helping each other? (Accept all reasonable responses.)
  • Did you give or receive help during that time? (Accept all reasonable responses.)

Let’s watch a video about some teenagers who chose to help others during the pandemic.

  • Why do you think the teenagers chose to help others? (Answers will vary.)
  • How might the teenagers’ actions be considered living on the edge? (Answers will vary. They took precautions with their health and safety to helps others. They sacrificed their time that could have been spent at home, relaxing, or connecting with their friends online.)
  • Because these students were older, they were able to use a car in purchasing and delivering groceries. Middle schoolers can’t drive yet. In what ways could a middle school student help others without needing a car? (Answers will vary. Invite speculation and contemplation. Some ideas might be: Ride along with someone who can drive and help carry supplies to the door, put pantry food and other staples in a nearby Little Library in the neighborhood. Designate a neighborhood spot like a corner with an interesting rock or tree as a supply area and make signs to distribute letting others know of these supplies. Call friends and use social conferencing technology to see friends and check in on them. Help parents and siblings around the house with chores and homework. There are many ways to live on the edge without a car.)

In today’s lesson, you’ll see other ways you can live on the edge and obey God. Let’s dig in and learn more.
