Read 1 Kings 18:39 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Can you play video games and read a book at the same time?
Parent Note: Maybe, but our performance on the video game probably wouldn’t be that good, and our comprehension of what we’re reading probably wouldn’t be that great either. The Israelites were worshiping God and Baal at the same time, but they couldn’t have been worshiping God truly if they were worshiping another god. To worship and follow God truly, we must have our eyes on only Him; our hearts must be turned only toward Him.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
God, thank You for being a big God and loving me in every way.
Please help me to focus on You in everything I do.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
