Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of June 5, 2017
Theme: Demonstrate God’s Strength
Strong on the Inside
Scripture: Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31).
Play: Look for things that are strong, like buildings, bridges or bulldozers. Don’t forget people! Take turns flexing your muscles.
Talk: When we trust God, He makes us strong, kind of like a tall skyscraper or a big truck. He doesn’t always make us physically strong, but He does give us strong minds and strong hearts. When something bad or scary happens, we have the strength to face it because we trust God to be there with us (Isaiah 40:31). When have you felt God’s presence and strength in a difficult situation?
Pray: Ask God to help you remember that He gives us strong bodies, minds and hearts.
