January 25 Recap & Devotional


01.25.15    

TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

THE TOWER OF BABEL

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

GENESIS 11:1-9

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:    

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

ROMANS 3:23

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:

Like God punished the people’s pride at the Tower of Babel, Jesus taught people to be humble. 

 

BOTTOM LINE:

God wants us to honor Him.

 

 

TABLE TALK:

Open your bibles to today’s passage. Read the story out loud together.

What is “pride?” 

How were the people in the story being prideful?

What are some ways that we can show God honor?

Why is it important to honor God?

 

 

AFFIRMATION:

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.

 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:

 

Dear God, thank you for caring about me

You are a good and loving Father

Please help me to trust that You know what is best for me

In Jesus’ name, amen

 

 

THIS MONTH’S FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT: PEACE

As a family, go through the following questions…

Can you think of a time you felt peaceful? What happened?

Why does God want us to have peace?

How can we see peace in today’s bible story?
