Read Jeremiah 38:2-3 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever had to give someone bad news?
Parent Note: It's not easy or fun to be the bearer of bad news. Jeremiah's job was to warn people of destruction and death, which meant that neither he, nor his message, were welcome; however, because God had called him to this, Jeremiah obeyed and gave the message to those who needed to hear it.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for sharing Your Truth with us.
You’re an honest and just God, and I know that I can trust You.
Please give me the courage to be faithful, even in the middle of troubles.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
