January 6 // Treasure in heaven.

Read Matthew 6:19-20 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Do we have to live without possessions and comfort in order to go to Heaven? 

 

Parent Note: Not at all! God blesses us with things all the time. This verse aims to remind us that our lives are not about acquiring things for the sake of having them and to make ourselves comfortable, but to live for Jesus. When we get wrapped up and attached in the things of this world, we forget what is truly important: Jesus. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for the hope of Heaven.
Thank You that if we trust You for our salvation, we will one day be in Heaven with You. Amen.
