August 16 // We can't hide from God.

Read Jonah 1:5 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Is there anywhere in your house where you could hide and never be found? 

 

Parent Note: Probably not. It might take a while for someone to find us, but if we were known to be hiding in the house, they could look in every room, around all of the furniture, and behind every door. At some point, we would be found. God is with us always. Trying to hide from God is like playing hide-and-go-seek in a single room without furniture and the seeker doesn’t have to cover his or her eyes. There’s nowhere to go. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for always being with me.
I know that You see and know every part of me.
Help me to bravely follow Your will for me.
We ask these things in in Jesus' name, Amen.
