Read Acts 2:38-39 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever tried something new and found that you're really good at it?
Parent Note: A few hours before he stepped outside and started proclaiming the Good News to the thousands of people milling around the streets of the city, Peter and the other disciples were discouraged by the amount of work they had to do in spreading the Gospel. The Holy Spirit entered the scene and completely changed the disciples' outlook on their job. The Holy Spirit gave them the motivation to go out and do it, and He gave them the words to say to touch people's hearts and change people's minds. Leading 3,000 people to their salvation in Jesus isn't bad for a first day at work!
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for the gifts and talents You have given me.
I know that You have made me to do something special.
Please help me to use these gifts to share Your Word.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
