December 8 // Faith and fear.

Read Acts 14:20 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Was Paul foolish for going back to the city where people tried to kill him?

Parent Note: Christians do things out of faith that non-believers see as foolish. Paul knew that even if he were to be killed preaching, God would find a way to accomplish the mission of spreading the Word of God and the Good News about salvation through Jesus Christ. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for the example of Paul’s courage.
I know that You will help me accomplish Your mission of sharing the gospel.
Help me to be have courage like Paul to walk into situations that scare me.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
