October 18 // We can be close to Jesus.

Read Luke 19:4 out loud with your family.

 

Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.

 

Q: Can you think of some other creative solutions to Zacchaeus’s problem? 

 

Parent Note: He could have asked someone to put him on his or her shoulders. He could have brought a ladder to set up near the crowd. Better yet, he could have asked the people in front of him if they would let him through so he could see. He went through a lot of trouble to see Jesus, when an easy solution was available. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for making Yourself available to me through Jesus.
I know that You want to have a close relationship, and You made a way.
Please help me to see You in everything I do.
We ask this in Jesus’s name, Amen.
