Read John 8:18 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: You get a brand new bike, but it requires you to put it together. Could you read the instructions in the dark?
Parent Note: Not only could we not read the instructions, we wouldn’t be able to see any of the parts or tools necessary to put it together. The instructions show us how to build the bike correctly so that it is functional and safe. Jesus is the only source of spiritual truth in this life. In order to make good choices and stay on the path God has set for us, we must follow Him.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for showing the world Your truth.
I know that without You, I would be lost in darkness.
Help me to rely on the truth of Your Word.
We ask this in Jesus’s name, Amen.
