September 8 // Jesus never sinned.

Read Matthew 4:10-11 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Has anyone ever offered you something in exchange for something you knew to be a sin? 

 

Parent Note: You don't have to get too into detail about their experiences, the point is to get your child thinking about how this made them feel. Being asked to do something blatantly wrong is insulting. Satan's offer caused Jesus to react so strongly that Satan fled after Jesus rebuked him. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord, thank You for sending Jesus to be my perfect Savior.
Even though I will mess up sometimes, I know that I can follow Jesus’s example when I am tempted.
Please teach me to have self-control and to turn away from sin.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
