November 17 // Speak the truth.

Read Acts 4:8-10 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Have you ever heard the saying: Honesty is the best policy? 

 

Parent Note: Peter and John had been called before the same religious rulers who had put Jesus to death. Telling these men that they had healed a man by the power of Jesus Christ was not going to be an easy thing to say. The Holy Spirit filled Peter and emboldened him to not only tell them by whose authority and power he had healed the crippled man, he went on to tell them that salvation can only be found through Jesus! Speaking the truth is not always easy, but it is always right. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for loving me.
I know that Jesus has more power than I can imagine, and he wants to share it with the world.
Help me to be to live my life in a way that points others to You.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
