In the Bible, we are commanded to be perfect in our love for one another, as the Father is perfect in His love for all people (Matt. 5:43-48). Use “Rope Designs” to bring the message home.
To place a piece of rope as a group in the configuration of an equal-sided square, triangle, etc., while blindfolded.
Any size group may be involved. The activity may be done indoors or out. The area should be clear of trees or other obstacles and reasonably flat. A rope forty to eighty feet long may be used. The larger the group, the longer the rope should be.
Group members put on blindfolds and are given the rope. They must keep at least one hand on the rope throughout the problem. When they believe the rope is in the shape of an equilateral triangle (or whatever configuration has been given), they remove their blindfolds.
Oftentimes part of the group will want to get the design perfect while others are content with getting close. In the Bible, however, we are commanded to be perfect in our love for one another, as the Father is perfect in His love for all people (Matt. 5:43-48). Any hateful act in our lives, regardless of how small is unacceptable in the eyes of God. Many people live a close approximation of Christian love, but do not truly seek a deep, genuine love for others.
