August 9 // God's laws are higher than man's laws.

Read Daniel 6:6-7 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: What would you do if a law made it illegal for you to tell your parent “I love you”?

 

Parent Note: That’s a ridiculous law! Just like worshiping God is always right, showing our love and appreciation for our parents and loved ones is always right. This new law told Daniel to do something that would cause him to disobey God. Daniel broke the law, but in this case, he did not sin. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for caring for me.
I know that Your laws and ways are good for me.
Please help me to put Your will first in my life.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen
