February 8 // New languages.

Read Genesis 11:7 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Is it okay to speak more than one language? 

 

Parent Note: Absolutely! In fact, speaking more than one language can be very helpful. The reason God confused their speech was to get the people to do as He commanded. The people separated, left the city, and populated the whole earth. There is nothing wrong with speaking more than one language. Without people who can speak foreign languages, how would we spread the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ? If we can’ understand each other, then we can’t help to lead others to God. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for doing what is best for me.
I know that Your plans are better than mine.
Help me to follow Your plan for my life.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
