January 11 // God made man and woman.

Read Genesis 2:18 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Why was it not good for Adam to exist alone? 

 

Parent Note: God is three persons in one: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Father loves the Son, the Son loves the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit loves the Father. Together they are a community. Because God made man in His image, man was made for fellowship and community. When God saw that Adam was alone, it was the only time in the entire creation story that God said something in His creation was not good. He saw Adam’s need and immediately created a solution. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord, thank You for making both men and women.
You are the Creator of community.
Help me to live my life the way You designed it to be.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
