Read Matthew 1:18 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: God has a special plan for all of us. What do you hope His plan is for your life?
Parent Note: Give your child an opportunity to answer. Most kids will likely answer by saying what they want to be when they grow up. Use this as an opportunity to ask them how they can weave the Gospel into what they hope to do.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for Your plan for me.
I know that You made me with special gifts and talents.
Help me to use what You’ve given me to spread Your Word.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
