November 21 // It takes courage.

Read Acts 8:28-29 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: How would you make friends if you had to start going to a new school or church? 

 

Parent Note: Approaching someone you don't know and striking up a conversation can be intimidating. At the leading of the Holy Spirit, Philip just walked up to this stranger and started talking to him about Scripture. How odd that must have felt, but he did it anyway! This question should get your child talking about how doing something like this takes a kind of courage. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for the people You have put in my life.
I know that each person is there for a purpose.
Please help me to have courage in talking to others about You.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
