Hands-on Faith for Families
Week of November 25, 2013

Easy and Hard Commandments

Play: Each person names three activities: one easy, one hard and one impossible (e.g., smile, read a story while hopping, touch the moon).

Talk: God asks us to do easy things, such as reading the Scriptures, praying and helping others. He also commands hard things, such as forgiving and praying for those who hurt us (Matthew 5:44). When we obey even the hard commands, we show our faith in God. God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac, and Abraham proved his faith in God when he obeyed (James 2:21-23). God knew He would provide another sacrifice to save Isaac’s life, but He was testing Abraham. God tests us, too. What hard things does God ask you to do?

Pray: Ask God to give you the faith to obey Him even in the hardest things.
