Read Acts 1:10-11 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever had a friend move far away or start going to a different school than you?
Parent Note: At first the disciples were sad because Jesus had left them. But the angels told them that Jesus would come back someday. Getting to see a friend every day is definitely a better situation, but knowing that you will get to visit again soon makes it a little easier to deal with your friend's absence.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for being with me, even when I can’t see You.
Please help me to live my life in a way that pleases You.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
