Godprints - Bible Object Lessons for Adults

Bible object lessons for adults are basically short, precise Bible studies that inspire, encourage, and help us keep our focus on Jesus even when things get super busy! These can be used for personal quiet times with God or as a short object talk for adults in groups.

We think of these as Godprints... because our fingerprints identify us, and God has placed His identifying marks all over our world and lives to point us to Him!

These become wonderful spontaneous moments in the midst of our busy day to refocus our attention on God's presence and purpose in our lives.
