Read Matthew 4:3 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What food could tempt you to disobey your parents’ request to not eat anything before dinner?
Parent Note: This is an easy way to get your child thinking about temptation. We know we should obey our parents, but it’s hard to do when we’re hungry and staring at a jar of fresh cookies!
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord, thank You for helping me when I’m tempted to do wrong.
I know that there is no sin that could ever be more satisfying than obeying You.
Please help me to choose to follow You, even when I am tempted to sin.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
