July 5 Recap & Devotional

07.05.15    

TODAY’S OVERVIEW:

 

BIBLE STORY:      

JOB

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

THE BOOK OF JOB

 

MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:    

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

ROMANS 8:28

 

CHRIST CONNECTION:

Like Job, Jesus honored God in times of trouble.

 

BOTTOM LINE:

God is in control.

 

TABLE TALK:

Ask your child to retell the story of Job to your family in their own words.

What was the one rule that God gave Satan in the story? Why do you think He did that?

Was God in control, even when bad things were happening to Job?

Can you think of a time that was hard for you? Maybe you were sad, lonely, or angry. Did you depend on God during that time?

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 taking care of me

You are always good, no matter what

Please help me to praise you even when things are hard

In Jesus’ name, amen

 

 

THIS MONTH’S FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT: GOODNESS

 

As a family, go through the following questions…

What is goodness? 

Where does goodness come from?

How can we see God’s goodness in this story?
