Hands-on Faith for Families– Week of January 2, 2017
Theme: Let God Lead You
God Wants to Direct Your Life
Scripture: Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. (James 1:23, 24).
Play: Count the number of mirrors on and inside your car — even the ones that may be hidden from view (hint: visors) or in the house.
Talk: Car mirrors have a purpose, giving the driver information to help him drive safely. Just as the mirrors are designed to help guide the driver as she operates the car, the Bible guides our lives by showing us how to live. But, if we listen to the Word and don’t obey it, it’s like looking in a mirror and ignoring what we see (James 1:23-24). What would happen if the driver ignored what he saw in one of the mirrors? What may happen in your life if you ignore God's Word?
Pray: Ask God to help you hear His voice and follow His instructions.
