January 29 // God's law directs us.

Read Genesis 6:5 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: If left out in the middle of nowhere without a compass, how would you find your way home? 

 

Parent Note: Well, we can use the position of the sun to determine a rough idea of direction, but it wouldn’t be very accurate. By night, we could use the stars if we understand how that is done. Without a compass, it would be very difficult to determine accurately where we are going. God and His laws are a sort of compass that help us to see what is right and what is wrong. The people living at this time did not follow God, so they were living without something that helped to distinguish between right and wrong. As they continued to make bad decisions they got further from the truth and God. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner.
I need You to show me how to live.
Help me to live a life worthy of the gospel.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
