Read Luke 2:44-45 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever been lost?
Parent Note: Jesus wasn't lost, but his parents didn't know where He was, or that He wasn't in danger. Remembering how they felt when they were lost will help your child to relate to the terror Mary and Joseph felt as they searched for Jesus.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for saving me.
Even before I knew I was lost, You sent Jesus to save me from sin.
Help me to turn away from sin and live like Jesus.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
