What's the One Thing?

As you work on preparing your lessons, prayerfully going over material, considering opening hooks and life application, illustrations, stories, etc -- all to help people engage and understand! -- here's the powerful question I implore you to ask:

What's the One Thing God wants them to get from this?

Notice that you should ask what God wants them to get from this.

Notice that it's ONE THING. They may get more, but they need to get at least ONE THING.

Sometimes it's not going to be obvious to you. Sometimes you might have several candidates. But I guarantee that diligently, prayerfully asking this question will improve your lessons! This is teaching to change lives.
