Read Luke 2:46 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What are some ways we can honor God's authority?
Parent Note: In this story, Jesus did not act according to typical behavior following a feast; instead, He stayed behind in the temple to discuss Scripture. Jesus acted as He was called to by His Father in heaven. What has God called you to do?
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for Your plans for me.
I know that You have great things in store for my life.
Please help me to follow Your will for my life.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
