Motion :: Week of June 29

You may think you don’t have what it takes to be courageous … but what if courage looks different than you think? The goal isn’t to remove fear completely, but to face your battles while you’re still afraid—knowing that God will never fail you or leave you.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show to learn that it takes courage to think about others. We took a look at Micah 6:8 to learn that we can live a selfless life by helping the people around us and focusing on what’s fair for them.

Focus on what’s fair for others. We have the power to do something about unfairness when we see it. It takes courage to speak up when something is unfair, but we can help others by doing something about it!

At bedtime this week, read Micah 6:8. Then, discuss the following questions together: What does it look like to treat everyone around you fairly? How can you do that?

You may think you don’t have what it takes to be courageous … but what if courage looks different than you think? The goal isn’t to remove fear completely, but to face your battles while you’re still afraid—knowing that God will never fail you or leave you.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show to learn that it takes courage to stand up for what’s right.  We took a look at Daniel 3:16-18 to see that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego listened to God and trusted Him, even when they knew things would be difficult. Because they knew God was with them, they had courage and stood up for what they believed in.

Be ready to stand up for what’s right. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego never gave up doing what was right, even when it would have been easier to do what was wrong. If we want to be ready to stand up for what is right the way they did, we need to know what’s right and start thinking through how we could make bold faith choices.

At dinner this week, ask: What habits can you’d develop today to build your courage for tomorrow?

Motion :: Week of June 15

You may think you don’t have what it takes to be courageous … but what if courage looks different than you think? The goal isn’t to remove fear completely, but to face your battles while you’re still afraid—knowing that God will never fail you or leave you.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show to learn that we can have courage and trust God with anything we face. We learned about the time David had the courage to defeat the giant, Goliath, and discovered that there are giant-sized challenges we’ll face in our own lives. We also learned that later on in his life, David wrote about the confidence we can have in God’s strength in Psalm 20:7.

You can have confidence in God’s strength. We’re going to face some pretty big obstacles in our life. Maybe not a real Goliath, but maybe some Goliath-sized challenges. But no matter what, the Bible shows us that we can have confidence in God’s strength. With God’s help and with the help of Godly people in our life, we can face any obstacle or challenge with courage. We can use things like God’s Word, worship, and support from our friends to help overcome our fears.

At bedtime, read Psalm 20:7. Discuss the following questions together: What does it mean to have confidence in God’s strength? Would you say you have confidence in God’s strength? What makes you say that?

Motion :: Week of June 8

You may think you don’t have what it takes to be courageous … but what if courage looks different than you think? The goal isn’t to remove fear completely, but to face your battles while you’re still afraid—knowing that God will never fail you or leave you.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show to learn that fear can come into our lives in many different ways, but God can help us overcome it! We took a look at Deuteronomy 31:6 to learn that we can have courage and step outside of our comfort zones because God is always with us.

Get out of your comfort zone. It takes courage to step outside of our comfort zone and try something new. We might be afraid or unsure of what’s going to happen, but having courage doesn’t mean we won’t have fear at all. It means we can get out of our comfort zone even when we’re afraid because God is always with us and we can trust Him.

At dinner this week, ask: What are some new things—baby steps—you can try to get outside your comfort zone and be courageous? (e.g. Saying hi to someone at school, making a phone call, answering a question in class, etc.)
