Read 1 Kings 3:3-4 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Think of the best gift you’ve ever received. How did you show your appreciation?
Parent Note: Saying thank you and giving hugs are good ways to show how much we appreciate gifts. Promising to take good care of the gift is another good way to say thank you. Offering sacrifices was the way people showed appreciation for God’s blessings, so to offer hundreds of sacrifices shows how very thankful Solomon really was.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, thank you for caring for me.
I know You have given me everything I need and more.
Please help me to honor You by being thankful.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
