November 22 Recap & Devotional


11.22.15    

TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

JESUS HEALS A BLIND MAN

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

MARK 10:46-52

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:

“When anyone lives in Christ, the new creation has come. The old is gone! The new is here!” - 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:

Like Jesus healed people of their illnesses, he also heals us of our sin.

 

BOTTOM LINE:

Jesus has power over sickness.

 

TABLE TALK: 

Open your bibles to today’s passage. Read it together as a family.

What did the blind man do after he was healed? Why is that important? 

What did other people do when they saw that the blind man could see? 

How are we like the blind man?

Why do we need to be healed?

 

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 healing me

You are good and merciful

Please show me how to be thankful for what you’ve done

In Jesus’ name, amen

 

THIS MONTH’S FOCUS: THANKFULNESS

What is something that happened today that you are thankful for?

What is something you can do today that would make someone else thankful?

How can we see thankfulness in today’s story?
