Read Genesis 6:14 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever made an ice sculpture?
Parent Note: It’s unlikely that any of us has ever made an ice sculpture. So if God asked us to do it, but we have no experience making ice sculptures, how would we even get started? God asked a man who lived in a desert to build a giant boat—Noah hadn’t ever built a row boat let alone an ark! God didn’t just tell Noah to build a boat and then left him to figure it out for himself. God gave Noah very specific instructions on how to make the boat so it would be easy for Noah to accomplish this giant task.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for Your guidance.
I know that if You ask me to do something, You will help me accomplish it.
Help me to have courage to obey You in the big things and the little things.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
