Motion :: Week of April 13

We can’t always understand why some things happen. But we can believe in a God who keeps His promises. We can have hope, even in the toughest times, because we know He can make something good out of something bad.

This week, we took a look at an incredible moment John recorded in John 12:9-16. God’s people were overwhelmed when Jesus made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. God kept His promise and the mission to save the world was happening. This didn’t go exactly how they expected, but God was up to something bigger than they could imagine!

Whatever happens, remember God keeps His promises. Because God keeps His promises, we can trust Him no matter what. Kids will face moments in their life where they might wonder if God will come through for them. We want kids to understand that God will come through. It might not be as they expected, but they can have hope that God will help them through their situation.

At bedtime, read John 12:9-16. Pray together, and ask God to remind you of His special promises every time you need it this week.

Motion :: Week of April 6

We can’t always understand why some things happen. But we can believe in a God who keeps His promises. We can have hope, even in the toughest times, because we know He can make something good out of something bad.

We started our new series by taking a look at John 11:1-45 to learn about the time Jesus helped some of his friends who had lost all hope. When Lazarus died, Jesus raised Him back to life and used the opportunity to point people to God. 

Whatever happens, remember how powerful God is. God can do amazing things in your life. We pray that kids will understand when they face something difficult or hard to understand,  they’ll find hope that God’s power can help us through whatever we face.

At dinner tonight, ask: When was a time that hope carried you through something difficult?

Motion :: Week of March 30

God is one of a kind. He has no beginning and no end. Everything He has created is unique and one-of-a-kind, including people created in His image.

Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create, and solve problems. Jesus lived this out in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

We finished our series by taking a look at Matthew 22:34-40 to discover the greatest commandment. With the greatest commandment, Jesus clarified what it meant to follow God. Instead of following hundreds of commands, Jesus said we are to love God and love others as we love ourselves. When we put this into practice, it helps us prioritize love in all of our relationships.

God made me to love others. We’re not meant to do life on our own. God made us for relationships, but for those relationships to thrive, love must be our goal.

Work together to brainstorm some ways you can use your unique talents to show love to others in your family and community this week.

We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

This week, we took a look at 1 Samuel 16 to learn about the time God used Samuel to anoint David as the next king of Israel. As the youngest of Jesse’s sons, David was the least likely to be crowned king. God helped Samuel discover that the true worth is not what we see on the outside but who we are on the inside.

God wants me to see what really matters. When we learn to see ourselves the way God does, it can change the way we see ourselves and others. God wants us to see others the way He sees them and show everyone they matter.

At bedtime, read 1 Samuel 16:1-13. Pray that God would help you see what truly matters about the people around you.

This week, we took a look at what Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12. Paul wrote to Timothy to remind him to stay faithful to the task God gave him. Although he was young, Timothy was able to lead the church and point people to Jesus.

God made me to make a difference. As we discover more about our individuality, we can begin to realize that God created us for a purpose. God can use our strengths to help others and show them what it means to follow Jesus.

At dinner tonight, share what individual gifts and talents you bring to the family and how it makes your family stronger when you celebrate your differences.
