January 3 // All things new.

Read Revelation 21:5 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: How clean are your favorite, most comfortable pair of shoes? 

 

Parent Note: As shoes become more and more formed to our feet and the way we walk, they become more comfortable; but they also become dirty. God created the earth, and He declared that it was good; but then man committed sin and we have used the earth and corrupted it. God will come and make everything brand new again, washing away all of the sin and destruction humans have caused on the earth. It will be like having our favorite shoes all broken in and comfortable, but they will be brand new and they will never wear out. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord, thank You for Your good plans.
I know that You are coming to make things new.
Help me to look forward and be ready for that day!
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
