Read Luke 10:31-33 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever been badly hurt?
Parent Note: When they were hurt, did they need someone to help them? Did anyone help them? This poor traveler was hurt so badly that he couldn’t care for himself. His survival relied upon the help of others. How desperate he must have felt as a potential rescuer just passed by him!
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for helping me.
I know that You saved me wen I couldn’t save myself.
Help me to see and help others.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
