Bible Point: God tells us how to respect others!
Key Verse: Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother and love your neighbor as yourself. – Matthew 19:18-19
God wants us to show His love and respect to others (Exodus 19:16–20:21). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:
1. Talk about a time you felt you were disrespected by a close friend. How did it feel? What did you do about it?
2. Then talk about why being shown respect is important to each person—no matter what age he or she is.
3. As a family, discuss ways you can show respect to other members of your family and the people around you. Give specific examples such as “I can show respect by turning off the TV and listening when you talk to me” or “I can show respect by not talking about friends behind their backs.”
Thank You, God, for our family. Increase the love every one of us has for each other while our faith grows more and more. In Jesus’ name, amen.
