PARABLE OF THE SOWER
MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:
“If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesn’t find fault.”
Like a seed, faith in Jesus needs to grow.
We can trust the Word of God.
Open your bibles to today’s passage. Read it together as a family.
What do the different soils represent?
What does the seed represent?
Why should we trust God's Word?
Can you think of a time when you depended on God's Word? What happened?
To affirm someone is to tell them what you know to be true about them. We can see affirmation used to uplift people in Scripture. (ex: Paul’s letters to the churches; see Philemon 1:4-7).
Take this time to encourage each member of your family through affirmation.
How do you see them becoming more like Jesus? What makes you thankful for them? Share these things with one another now as a family.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank you for reaching out and saving me
You are wise and full of grace
Please help me to depend on you
In Jesus’ name, amen
