July 14 // We should ask God for help with our decisions.

Read Esther 7:5 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: When playing a board game, have you ever made a move you wished you could take back? 

 

Parent Note: When playing games, we often fixate on a good move and fail to see that it makes us vulnerable to attack from our opponents. The king made a mistake by trusting Haman and not looking into the consequences of this plan. Once the king made and sent out his edict, there was nothing he could do to take it back. 

 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord, thank You for giving me grace.
I know that even if I make mistakes, You’ll always forgive me.
Please help me to make wise choices.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
