Bible Point: Jesus helps us resist temptation.

Key Verse: Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. – Hebrews 2:18
When we’re faced with temptation, we can ask Jesus for strength to do what’s right (Luke 4:1-13). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:

  1. Tell about a time you felt overpowering temptation. Share honestly about the struggles you had and how you overcame the temptation. (Choose something that is age-appropriate so children will begin to understand that temptation is something everyone faces.)
  2. Then share things that help you defeat temptation, such as praying or spending time with people who help you stay strong against temptation.
  3. Encourage family members to discuss ways to help one another with the temptations they regularly face.


God, thank You for always providing a way out of temptation. This week, when we’re tempted to do wrong, help us look to You for strength. In Jesus’ name, amen.
