August 17 // God gives us choices.

Read Matthew 3:16-17 out loud with your family.


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


Q: Would you believe that an image of a unicorn being chased by a dragon was a real photograph?  


Parent Note: When people on the shores of the Jordan River heard the voice of God declare that Jesus was His son, and they saw the Holy Spirit descend upon Jesus like a dove, some people believed, and some people didn't. How could anyone deny that Jesus was the Son of God after witnessing something like that? We have free will, and God will not force us to choose Him. With blatant evidence staring us in the face, we can choose to believe in the miraculous grace we find in Jesus, or we can choose to reject it. 



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


Dear Lord, thank You for inviting me to be with You forever.
You’re a loving Father who gives us choices, and helps us to choose what is right.
Please help me to make choices that honor You.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
