Bible Point: Be devoted to God
Key Verse: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
We learned this week how Solomon married many foreign women and worshiped their gods. God became angry at Solomon for disobeying his commands and turning away from him. From Solomon, we can learn that we need to be devoted to God (1 Kings 11:1-13). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea.
- Talk about something you’re really devoted to. Maybe you’re passionate about your job and spend a lot of time working at it. Or maybe you have a hobby that you know everything about and that takes up your time and attention.
- Then ask your kids to think about something they’re devoted to, such as a sport or a computer game. Encourage your kids to think about what it would be like if they spent the same amount of time and attention on God.
- Talk about ways your family could be more focused on God. Praying together, serving others, and going to church are all possible activities that could help.
Lord, You deserve our time and attention. Show us ways we can express our devotion to You. And help us get rid of things in our lives that take our attention away from You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
