Read Acts 8:39 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Who are you thankful for having in your life?
Parent Note: This is an opportunity to remind your child that these people for whom they are thankful are in their lives because Jesus has a plan for their lives, and it is good. God brings people in and out of our lives. Even if they go, we should be thankful that God brought them to us. Although the meeting between Philip and the Ethiopian was short, they were both better for having met.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for your Word and your Holy Spirit who guides us, encourages us, and gives us peace no matter what happens.
Help us to trust you and obey you in everything we do.
We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
