Read Nehemiah 8:1 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Why do you think Ezra read the Law of Moses to the people?
Parent Note: The people had fallen into sin and forgotten God’s Word. Ezra read them the Law to remind them of the God they served. We should also spend time in God’s Word to keep us from falling into temptation.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
God, thank You for the bible.
Please help me to know Your Word and to make it a part of my life.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
