Hands-on Faith for Families – week of 12/17/12

God's Love Is Faithful

 

Romans 8:38-39

 

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Talking to God

 

Tell God how you intend to consistently treat others well, but sometimes don't. Thank God for His unfailing love and ask Him to help you love better.

 

Diving In

 

For one full day, try to treat others well. The "others" should be your family and everyone else around you. Do your best to keep from becoming upset, impatient or annoyed, regardless of what others do or how they treat you.

 

Going Deeper

 

Proverbs 20:6 questions whether anyone has unfailing love as God does. It asks, "But a faithful man who can find?" Then throughout the Old Testament, writers constantly praise the faithfulness of God's love. As a believer, God helps you be more consistent in your relationships with others because of His faithfulness. You may not be able to perfectly love others by yourself, but God empowers you to more faithfully love others.

 

Talking to Each Other

• How easy or hard was it to love others all day?

• Do you think you could do this every day?

• What would keep you from treating others well?
