Read Acts 8:26 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever liked something, like a baseball teamor a famous singer, that your family and friends didn't like?
Parent Note: This question is meant to get the your child thinking about how it feels to disagree with the opinions of others in a light-hearted way. Many people in power in Jerusalem did not believe Jesus was the Messiah, and they did not like Jesus' followers spreading the Gospel.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for the direction You have for my life.
I know that Jesus is the Truth, even if others don’t believe it.
Please help me to be fearless and share the gospel with people around me.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
