Read Luke 10:30 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Do you know of any places in your city that are considered a bit dangerous or unsafe?
Parent Note: Once you name a few places, ask them if they would go to this area at night. If we can, we avoid potentially dangerous situations. The distance between Jerusalem and Jericho is just far enough that travelers wanted to choose the quickest route possible, but doing so put them in danger.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, I know that even when things look scary or dangerous, You keep me safe.
Thank You for watching over me.
Help me to trust You when I feel afraid.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
