Hands-on Faith for Families – week of February 19, 2018
Theme: Putting God First
Working for God
Scripture: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart working for the Lord and not for men… (Colossians 3:23)
Play: When you’re on the go, look for people who are working. Maybe you’ll spot a mail carrier, a construction worker, a gardener, a trash collector. Who can spot the most people working?
Talk: Colossians 3:23-24 says that we should do our work as if we’re working for God. So whether we’re doing chores, homework or a paid job, we should work at it with all our hearts. Our pastors and children’s ministry leaders all serve God with their work, and they give us a good example to follow. How can we show our appreciation for their hard work?
Pray: Pray that you would remember to do your work for God.
