How the Poster Works
Click Here to watch a video that explains how to use the poster in greater detail.
This is how the Kingdom of God family devotional poster works. The poster is divided between sheep and goats. Sheep representing how people in the Kingdom of God should be. Goats represent the behavior of those outside the Kingdom. In the poster the sheep and goats are paired by color. For example, Jesus says unless you change and become more childlike you will not enter the Kingdom of God. The off white colored sheep below are modeling what it looks like to become more childlike. This is from Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 18:1-5.
Conversely, these matching off white colored goats below are modeling what it looks like not to be childlike. Next to each sheep or goat are the corresponding verses to Jesus’ teaching about the Kingdom of God.
Still need some help? No worries. We have also prepared 30 days of simple 15 minute devotionals here on BaaaMa.com to help guide you. They are ordered from the simplest verses about the Kingdom to the more complex. Each devotional has a fun activity, good discussion questions and help in understanding the core principles of the passage.
Additionally, we have hidden in the poster over 80 items in the poster that are not sheep or goats. For example, can you find all 12 of the fish symbols?
About the Creators
A little about us. Rick and Rebecca are married and have four awesome sons. Rick, the creator of the poster, gave his life to Jesus at the age of 11 but has really been walking with him his whole life. Rick’s professional career has led him through the IT/computer world and it has also involved founding non profit mentoring programs with Rebecca: mentoringisamust.org and hopeherd.org. He is 2.5 credits short of a masters in Biblical Studies. That education has included two semesters of Hebrew and five semesters of Greek. He has read the Bible cover to cover close to 20 times and has been reading and studying it consistently most of his life. All that to say there is some education behind the creation of the poster and that you can be assured that each lesson gets to the heart of Jesus’ teaching about his favorite topic. As our pastor said just a few weeks ago… “If you missed the Kingdom…. You missed Jesus.”
Our main gig is serving youth in foster care so 10% of all proceeds go to helping youth in care. Baaa Maaa is a carbon negative company and all posters are printed on recycled paper. So the world is a better place on many levels for each poster that is purchased.
We are excited for you to begin your journey learning about the Kingdom and for you to begin advancing that Kingdom here on earth. We hope it stays with you the rest of your life. Have fun and thank you for supporting the cause.
