Read Genesis 6:22 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Has anyone ever made fun of you for doing what is right?
Parent Note: Scripture tells us that we will face ridicule for doing as God commands. Sometimes, God asks His followers to do seemingly crazy things, like build an ark in the desert—the only crazy thing would be not following God’s direction. When God tells us to do something, it is for our best interest to do it. Imagine if Noah hadn’t done this crazy thing God asked him to do—he would have died with the rest of the people in the flood. God’s instructions don’t always make sense, but they are always the right thing to do in every situation.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for Your showing me Your way.
I know that it may seem crazy to the rest of the world, but Your plans are good and wise.
Help me to care more about what You think than what others think.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
