Read Matthew 17:4 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever experienced something you wished would never end?
Parent Note: Peter was amazed to see Moses and Elijah standing in front of him. That’s why he offered to build three tents. He wanted them to stay and for the feeling he felt at the moment to last forever.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for good feelings like happiness, excitement, and love.
I know that sometimes my feelings will change, but You never will.
Help me to remember that no matter how I feel, You are still good.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
