January 2 // Here he comes!

Read Revelation 21:3 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Would you rather hang out with friends in person or chat on the phone? 

 

Parent Note: Chatting on the phone is better than nothing, but hanging out in person is so much better. We can do things together, whereas a phone conversation limits us to just talking. When we go to Heaven, we will be able to talk to Jesus face-to-face. We can do things with Jesus. Our relationship with God will be complete once we are in Heaven. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord, thank You for keeping Your promises.
I know that You are coming back, because Your Word is the truth.
Help me to look forward and be ready for that day!
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
