TOPIC: Idle Youths Are Vulnerable To Vices And Temptations (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 21 February 2021 Anthem)

OPENING PRAYER: Father, please provide jobs for our youth and occupy them for Your glory.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask the members what they have learned from last week topic.

MEMORY VERSE: The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. – Proverbs 12:24

BIBLE TEXT: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-16 (KJV)

6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;

8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.

15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: There is a popular adage that says ‘an idle mind is the devil’s workshop’. No one was created a non entity by God. Everybody has a talent embedded in him or her. Our today’s text is in consonance with it. Today you can bear witness that some physically challenged people are displaying their talents and skills in various vocations. So, any youth or anybody who says he/she has nothing to do should refrain from being idle and check inward.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ‘VULNERABLE’ (see today’s heading)? It is when someone is exposed to the chance of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally. Then, what are ‘vices’ ? Vice or vices mean bad habit. It therefore means that if you are idle, there is that tendency of being prone or exposed to some habits that will be hazardous to the society.

To establish a relationship between idleness and social vices.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. Comprehend the vulnerability that follows idleness.
ii. Guide against idleness and vices.


i. Be occupied and never be weary in good deeds.
ii. The glory of the youth is in their strength.

TEACHING METHOD: Use the discussion method.

TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.

LESSON OUTLINES: There are two outlines:


1. DAVID: He was an instrumentalist and this took him to the palace. – 1 Samuel 16:16-23
2. JOSEPH: Even as a slave, his master recognised his hard work and handed over his properties to Joseph to manage. – Genesis 39:1-4

1 Hard drugs: Drug barons may lure them to carry drugs for them.
2 Armed robbery: They may be lured to join armed robbery gangs.
3 Hired assassins: They may be recruited into a killer squad.
4 Kidnapping and banditry: They may induce them to become their members.
5 Lesbianism, gay etc.: Satan dangles huge money to lure idle people into his kingdom.
6 They may be lured to join secret cults for quick wealth and fame.
7 Male and female prostitution. Etc..

ACTIVITY: In this period of high rate of unemployment, how can a youth engage himself/herself?

SUMMARY: Please youths engage yourselves in any legitimate work to avoid social vices.

CONCLUSION: Idleness is a destructive weapon in the hand of the devil against his victims. Please look for any legitimate and profitable venture to do. Then you will be surprised how God will bless the work of your hand.


  1. Father, thank You for the salvation of my soul.
  2. Father, deliver our youth and the unemployed from the spirit of idleness today.
  3. Genesis 16:19 – Father, please open my eyes to see that talent you deposited in me.
  4. Father, please answer Daddy G.O.’s prayer over our children that they will be greater than their parents.
  5. Individual prayers.
