Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of July 17, 2017
Theme: Enjoy God’s Creation
God Created Fish and Birds
Scripture: And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” (Genesis 3:20).
Play: Challenge your children to name as many types of sea creatures as they can in 30 seconds. Then for round two, have them shout out every kind of bird they can think of in 30 seconds.
Talk: God created the birds of the sky and the creatures of the sea (Genesis 1:20-23). God’s creativity is unmistakable! He has filled the water and the sky with all kinds of animals, from tiny goldfish to gigantic whales, from colorful toucans to soaring eagles. After creating this assortment of creatures, God saw that they were good and blessed them. How can we show God that we are thankful for the birds and fish He has created?
Pray: Thank God for His creativity in forming all the different creatures that fill the earth’s sky and water.
