Tehillim/Psalm 1 Cartoon Activity

Tehillim 1 tells about the things one must do to be righteous! Righteous means you are doing what God would want you to do! In this activity you are going to read Tehillim 1 to find out what someone who wants to follow God does (and doesn’t do)! Then you will create a cartoon about it! Let’s get started!

Directions:

  1. Read Tehillim 1 and make a list of the things a righteous person does (and doesn’t do). For example, in verse one it says a righteous person doesn’t listen to the advice of a wicked person.
  2. Get a regular, blank piece of paper and create a cartoon which tells the story of what a person must do to be righteous. The carton should include the following:
    • At least six panels. Use the cartoon panel template: Six Panel Cartoon Template
    • Color or black and white.
    • Dialog between characters or descriptions.
  3. When you are finished, take a picture of it and post it on Facebook or Instagram and tag us @SparksOfMessiah

Additional Resources:

  1. Learn to pray Tehillim.
  2. Use the Tehillim Chooser app to find Tehillim to pray for your specific situation.

Conductor of Praise Poster Activity

Tehillim 148 calls the reader to the position of conductor of praise for God! You can imagine standing on the edge of a cliff with the conductor’s wand and pointing to each thing as you call out: “Praise Him, sun and moon! Praise Him, all bright stars!…”

For this activity you are going to create a poster which includes all of the things Tehillim 148 calls on to praise God. There is quite a list but that will be part of the fun of this activity! Can you creatively find a place for each thing in a poster?

Directions:

  1. Read Tehillim 148 and write down a list of everything which is being commanded to praise God. (i.e. Heavens, heights, angels, legions, sun, moon, bright stars, etc.)
  2. Get a regular sized piece of paper (or bigger) and start drawing pictures of each of the things from your list.
  3. Add some color and maybe a title.
  4. Take a picture of your poster and post it on Facebook or Instagram and tag us @SparksOfMessiah
