Hands-on Faith for Families – week of August 7, 2017

Theme: Live Peacefully

Peace through Following God’s Rules

Scripture: The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. (Isaiah 32:17)

Play: With Mom or Dad standing close by, try walking around the room wearing snowshoes, swim fins or shoes that are way too big. How far can you go without stumbling or wobbling? Do you think a rule that we shouldn't wear these things in the house would be a good idea? Explain.

Talk: Consider Psalm 119:165: “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” God promises you a giant helping of peace when you do what His Word says. Following God’s rules helps you make fewer mistakes, and you no longer have to worry about “stumbling” or getting hurt because of bad decisions. Living according to God's Word allows His peace to rule your heart. Whew! For a reminder of what God's Word says, review Psalm 18:30, 19:8, 33:4.

Pray: Tell God what you love about His Word, the Bible. Tell Him why you like a certain verse or story, and thank Him for it.
