July 16 // Love those who are different.

Read Esther 3:8-9 out loud with your family.


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


Q: What was Haman’s plan really meant to do?


Parent Note: Haman wanted to get rid of all of the Jewish people. If you refused to be friends with someone just because they were different from you, you’d be missing out on friendships with a lot of cool people! We aren’t going to always agree with people and like all the same things, and that is okay. 



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


Dear Lord, thank You for making me.
You’re a loving God and I know You have a purpose for me.
Please help me to love others the way that You love them.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
