January 30 // Stand out for God.

Read Genesis 6:9 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: If everyone at your school decided to shave their heads, would you do it? 

 

Parent Note: Not following this trend would make us stand out and might leave us open to teasing. Shaving our heads to fit in so we won’t get teased would mean going against our own better judgment. It could have been so easy for Noah and his family to stop following God to fit in with the rest of the people living at the time, but that would have gone against their beliefs and faith in God. They did not fit in with the rest of society, but, by continuing to do what was right, God singled them out to be saved from the coming judgment. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for being there for me.
I know I can always look to You for what is right.
Help me to be brave and follow You, even when others don’t like it.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
