January 12 // More than animals.

Read Genesis 2:19 out loud with your family.


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


Q: How are we different from the animals that God created?


Parent Note: God made us able to reason and make decisions. That is different from every other thing God created. While animals have brains, they are creatures of instinct, they do not have souls. Our ability to apply reason and make decisions shows that we were created in God’s image. 



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


Dear Lord, thank You for making us different from any other creation.
I know that I have a special purpose and calling.
Help me to live the way You want me to.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
