GRANDPA’S BIBLE STUDY –
ROCKY (Rocky enters) Today is Bible study at Grandpa’s. I think I’ll
show up late today. If I do that, then I’ll miss out on the Bible
study and get in on the games and refreshments. I know . . ., I’ll
tell them I forgot about Bible study, but remembered to go at the
last minute! (Rocky exits)
GRANDPA (Grandpa, Crystal, Piper, Sandy and other children enter) It’s
almost time to get started. Crystal, where’s Rocky today?
SANDY Oh, he said he was coming, when I talked to him yesterday!
GRANDPA I’ll tell you what we ought to do! Instead of having Bible study
first, let’s start with the games and refreshments, since Rocky’s
not here yet. I want everyone here when we have our lesson.
CHILDREN Oh, boy!
ROCKY (Rocky enters) I’m already a half hour late. They should be done
with the Bible study by now! (Rocky exits)
SANDY (All enter with Rocky entering from the other side) Hello, Rocky!
You missed out on all the fun and refreshments, already, but you
came just in time for the Bible study.
ROCKY I . . ., Oh . . ., I missed out?
PIPER Yes, but come join us, since you’re here!
ROCKY Oh . . ., O.K.!
GRANDPA Say, it’s good to have you with us, Rocky! I was getting pretty
worried about you, because your sister said you were coming.
What happened to you?
ROCKY Oh . . ., I just remembered a few minutes ago!
GRANDPA I’m glad you could make it, anyway, Rocky! Today we’re goin’
to talk about being on time. (Rocky looks away from Grandpa until
he’s finished talking) We’re responsible to others and to God to be
on time. Can you imagine what it would be like if a preacher was
late for church? Can’t you just see all the people just sitting and
waiting until he got there?
SANDY That would be awful! (Rocky continues to look in other directions)
GRANDPA When he got there, he would have to cut his sermon short, so
everyone could leave when they were supposed to go. If you open
your Bibles to Romans 7:18, we’ll see why we have this problem of
being late. Crystal, will you read it please?
CRYSTAL Yes, Grandpa! “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,)
dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but how to
perform that which is good I find not.” (Rocky starts looking down)
GRANDPA A lot of times, we have the right attitude about doing the right
things, but when it comes down to doing it, we sometimes put it off.
A person needs to ask the Lord to help him keep those plans he’s
made, to keep a good testimony. This reminds me; I better let you
go home, because your parents are expecting you home pretty soon.
(All say good byes to each other and exit, except Grandpa and
Rocky who stay)
ROCKY Oh, Grandpa, I’m sorry! I lied to you. I came late because I didn’t
want to come to the Bible study.
GRANDPA Oh, I understand, Rocky. I think you learned your lesson for today.
I want you to know that I put this lesson together a few days ago!
Say, I still have some refreshments left! Would you like to take
some home with you?
ROCKY Yes, sir! (Both exit)
