Read Matthew 26:51 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: You see someone stealing your pet. What is your first thought on how you would react?
Parent Note: Peter loved Jesus. He saw a righteous man who had never done anything wrong get arrested for something He did not do. This was a huge injustice! He reacted without thinking and caused something horrible to happen. He didn't understand that the enemy's plan to kill Jesus would be used by God to save the world.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord, thank You for making me part of Your plan.
I know that all things work together for the good of those who love You.
Help me to make the right choices.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
