Love

Key Verse:
“Love the Lord you God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:5)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: Jesus deserves our love and gratitude.

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Luke 4:22-30) This passage comes right after Jesus proclaimed himself as the Messiah. Of course some believed, but there were also those that doubted his claim and demanded that he perform miracles. When Jesus mentioned that Elijah and Elisha performed miracles for faithless Jews he was comparing them (the faithless Jews) to the people that were in his presence demanding miracles. In their anger they drove Jesus out of town, and even tried to throw him off the cliff. Jesus simply walked through the crowd and left.

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Discuss a difficult situation your family has faced. Ask family members to talk about it, and then discuss how God met your needs and how you responded to God in that situation. Then challenge family members to think about how they respond to Jesus throughout an average day.  At the end of each day this week, have family members share an honest assessment of how they responded to Jesus during the day. Responses might include “I was aware of Jesus’ presence all day” or “I totally ignored God today.” You might want to do this as a “response to Jesus” reminder several times a year.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Encourage your child(ren) to point out things he or she doesn’t completely understand. Your child might ask, “What makes the sun so bright?” or “What makes the air move?” Tell your child, “God makes the sun shine brightly” or simply say, “I don’t know, but God knows.” Remind your child that we can believe in Jesus even though we can’t see him.
