July 31 // We should celebrate God's gifts.

Read Daniel 1:18-20 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Name something you're good at doing. How would you feel if someone did it better than you? 

 

Parent Note: It can be hard to deal with the knowledge that we're not the best. A good way to handle such situations is to figure out how the other person is better at whatever it is and learn from them. A bad way to handle such situations is to allow yourself to become jealous of the person and their talents. 

 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for blessing me with gifts and talents.
I know that every part of me is uniquely designed by You.
Please help me to use these things to bring You honor.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen
