July 12 // God has us here for a reason.

Read Esther 4:7-8 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: How would you get tickets to a sold-out concert or sporting event? 

 

Parent Note: If it’s sold out, we’d have to know someone who has tickets or access to the place where the event is being held. Without that kind of connection, we wouldn’t be able to attend. Mordecai had a connection within the palace—his niece, Esther. Through her, he could alert the king to Haman’s evil plan to wipe out all of the Jewish people. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

Dear Lord, thank You for Your pans for me!
I know that my home, my family, and all that I have was perfectly chosen by You.
Please help me to use these blessings to honor You.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
