Bible Point: Trust God completely
Key Verse: “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’…But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:31
We learned this week how God used Elijah to bring a widow’s son back to life. And we discovered that even when circumstances look bad or even impossible, we need to trust God completely (1 Kings 17:7-24). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea.
- Talk with your children about a time you trusted God completely. Tell your children why you needed to trust God and what God did for you as a result of trusting him.
- Then allow your children to share any areas where they need to trust God. Maybe they’re worried about passing a class in school, or maybe they’re concerned about a relationship they have.
- Encourage your children to think about how trusting God can help in these situations.
Lord, we want to trust You completely. It’s scary to give up control and hand over our lives to You. Remind us that You’re already in control and that You care about us. Teach us to trust You without any reservations. In Jesus’ name, amen.
