July 17 // We should be content.

Read Job 1:2 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Most would say Job lived the "good life." What would the "good life" include for you? 

 

Parent Note: Maybe it would mean having a cool bike or all the video games we could ever want. While prosperity is not promised to everyone who loves God, He blesses everyone who loves and obeys Him. We may not have every material possession we’ve ever wanted, but God has blessed us in other ways. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

Dear Lord, thank You for all that You’ve given me.
I know that Your ways are best, and I trust You with all that I have.
Teach me to be content with all You’ve given me.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
