Bible Point: Choose to serve God
Key Verse: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:2-3
We learned how Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal to prove that only God is real. We discovered that when only God was able to burn up the sacrifice, the people of Israel repented and chose to serve God instead of idols. Like the Israelites, we need to choose to serve God (1 Kings 18:16-40). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth with this easy idea.
1. Tell your children about a time you served God. What did you do and what was it like to serve God?
2. Tell your children about a time that someone served God by helping you. What happened and what was that like for you?
3. Point out ways that you see your children serving around your home and encourage them by letting them know that these ways are also ways to serve God and one another.
God, You deserve every bit of our time and attention. We want to give our lives in service to You. Show us little ways we can serve You throughout each day and big ways we can serve You with our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
