Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of August 28, 2017

Theme: Live Peacefully

Peace in Safety

Scripture: I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)

Play: Who or what might scream if you burn your toast or oatmeal? (you, your mom or dad and the smoke alarm)

Talk: In the old days, people were warned of a fire when someone in the street twirled a wooden rattle. People who were asleep, however, sometimes didn’t hear the rattle. Now houses and other buildings have small plastic boxes with batteries that warn when there is a fire. You can sleep peacefully without worrying you won’t hear a rattle in the street. God gives you an even better kind of peace that helps you feel safe all the time. Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Pray: What things keep you safe every day? Being safe gives a feeling of peace. Thank God for things that keep you safe — seat belts, locks on doors, parents, police, fire fighters and even smoke alarms.
