Read Genesis 4:8-9 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: If you accidentally broke something in a store that has video cameras, do you think they would find out what you did?
Parent Note: They have video cameras in the store so they can see just those sorts of things happen. God is with us all the time, so He knows everything that we do and say. Deeper still, God knows our hearts, so He knows our feelings and thoughts about ourselves and others. With God, we cannot hide from our actions, and we cannot deceive Him.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for knowing my heart.
I know that You see all of me, and You still love me.
Help me to have a heart like Yours.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
