February 22 // The Truth.

Read Genesis 27:19 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Have you ever played a joke on someone? 

 

Parent Note: If Rebekah and Jacob's trick hadn't led to something as serious as stealing Esau's blessing from him, it would have been a good joke played on Isaac. Playing jokes or tricking someone with the intent to hurt or harm is wrong. Rebekah and Jacob tricked Isaac with the intent to steal Esau's blessing, and they were very wrong to have done it.

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for Your Word.
I know that everything from You is the truth.
Help me to be honest, and to share Your truth with others.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
