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:
- 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.)
- Then share things that help you defeat temptation, such as praying or spending time with people who help you stay strong against temptation.
- 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.
