Hands-on Faith for Families – week of November 6, 2017
Theme: Thinking about Others
Love Always Hopes
Scripture: Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:7 ESV)
Play: Teach your children a new trick such as whistling, snapping their fingers, blowing a bubble with gum or saying a difficult tongue twister.
Talk: Learning something new can be hard. You may even feel like giving up; but if you believe you will learn and keep trying, eventually you’ll get it! When someone doesn't treat us nicely, we may feel like giving up on that relationship and or no longer loving that person. But 1 Corinthians 13:7 teaches us that loving someone means never losing hope that things will change for the better. God loves us this way. Even when we do wrong, He loves us and never gives up on us. What are some ways that you can show hopeful love to others?
Pray: Thank God for always having hope in you, and ask Him to help you hope for the best for others.
