耶稣答应有一天祂会回来，但是什么时候呢？耶稣说：“所以你们要儆醒，因为不知道你们的主哪一天要来。” （马太福音24:42）那么我们如何儆醒呢？是的，这就有点像我们刚刚玩的游戏。负责人知道，一旦骰子是双数，他们就要挤压旁边人的手。而其他人也要作好准备随时挤压另一人的手。我们可以通过每天按照耶稣的旨意生活来为耶稣的再来做预备。另外，负责人要确保骰子是双数的，因此他们的注意力需要集中。就像我们的主归来一样，我们也需要注意力集中并保持警惕，因为正如圣经所说：“主的日子来到，好像夜间的贼一样。” （帖撒罗尼迦前书5:2）

READY, SET, SQUEEZE
A lively, fun, and fast-paced game where preparation produces a winning team while teaching children to be prepare for the return of Jesus.
Preparedness, Readiness, Return of Jesus, Just for fun
Dice or a large coin
Approximately 15 minutes
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
Divide the class into two teams. Since holding hands is necessary, you may want to have girls on one team and boys on the other for particular age groups. Teams must have an equal number of players. Have one team sit down in a semi-circle, and the other team opposite them in another semi-circle. See diagram below. All the children will keep their eyes closed except the two children nearest to the teacher. They are the leaders and will keep their eyes open to watch as the teacher drops a die or a coin. The players on each team hold hands. The two children at the opposite end from the leaders are the anchors. With their free hand, the anchors will try to be the first to grab the stuffed animal when their other hand is squeezed.When the dice comes up even, or the coin comes up heads, the leader of each team will quickly squeeze the hand of the one they are holding, then that child will quickly squeeze the hand of the next person, and so on until the hand of the anchor is squeezed. The team that grabs the stuffed animal first receives 1,000 points.
Sometimes, the hand squeezing happens although the dice comes up odd. It is impossible to stop the chain reaction once it starts. This makes the game even more fun. The team that grabs the stuffed animal on a false start looses 1,000 points. After several rounds of play, the team with the most points wins.
Play option: Instead of adding up points, the team that grabs the stuffed animal first on each round will rotate their players. The anchor becomes the leader, and everyone else moves down. When the stuffed animal is grabbed on a false start, the players rotate the opposite way, meaning the leader goes back to being the anchor. The winning team is the one where the original leader has rotated all the way through the team and ends up back at the leader spot.
WHAT YOU WILL SAY:
Jesus promised he would return some day, but when? Jesus says, “Keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” (Matthew 24: 42) So how do we keep watch? Well, it is a little like the game we just played. The leaders knew that as soon as the dice came up even, they needed to squeeze the hand of their neighbor. Everyone else was ready to squeeze the next hand as soon as they felt a squeeze. We can be ready for Jesus by living according to His will everyday. Also, the leaders needed to make sure the dice was even, so they really needed to pay attention. It is like that with the return of our Lord. We need to pay attention, and be alert, because as the Bible says, “The day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” (1 Thessalonians 5:2)
