PARABLE OF THE SOWER
MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being sure of what we do not see.” - HEBREWS 11:1
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 does the seed represent? The soils?
When was the last time you were discouraged about something? What did you do about it?
Why is it important to look to Jesus in the midst of trouble?
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 always being there for me
You are perfect and wise
Please give me wisdom to understand your Word and obey it
In Jesus’ name, amen
