Motion :: Week of November 23

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at James 1:5, to learn that we don’t have to be afraid to ask questions — God wants us to ask questions so we can learn more about Him and how He wants us to live. In fact, our questions will help us grow in our faith!

God will never be upset by our questions. He won’t tell us the question is dumb or wrong. He won’t think we’re bad people because of the questions we ask. In fact, God wants us to ask questions. Asking questions means we’re thinking and learning. When we ask questions, our faith is actually strengthened through our struggle. When we seek His answers, God’s wisdom helps our faith grow.

At bedtime this week, read James 1:5 and pray together. Pray your child will feel confident asking God the questions on their hearts. Pray that God will speak to them through His Word and that He will put people in their lives who can share godly wisdom when they have questions.

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Matthew 17:24-25, to learn that we can build a solid foundation for our lives by spending time in God’s Word and practicing what it says.

When we dig into the Bible and put what it says into practice, we’re building a solid foundation for our lives. No matter what kinds of problems we face, God’s Word has advice and solutions. If we want His Word to hold us up in hard times, we have to spend time reading it and practicing what it says.

At bedtime this week, read Matthew 17:24-25 and pray together. Pray your child will see the value in spending time in God’s Word. Pray they’ll prioritize setting aside time each day to read their Bibles and put God’s Word into practice.

Motion :: Week of November 9

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Luke 5:16, to learn about how important it is to turn off all distractions and have quiet time with God.

Jesus regularly made time to be alone so He could pray and meditate in stillness. Solitude and quiet helped Him hear God’s voice and remember God’s promises and commands to Him. Finding stillness, or quiet time with God, is a survival skill. We can’t have a thriving relationship with God if we never quiet ourselves to let Him speak.

At bedtime this week, read Luke 5:16 and pray together. Pray your child will set aside time to be quiet with God. Pray they’ll recognize the calmness and peace they can find when they set aside consistent quiet time to hear from God.

During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Matthew 6:9-13, to learn about how we can talk to God through prayer.

Jesus sat down with His disciples one day to teach them all about how God wanted them to live. In this part of His sermon, Jesus taught the disciples how to pray. His prayer included some important things we can include in our prayers, like praising God for who He is and what He’s done for us. Like Jesus, we can ask God to help us live His way, to give us things we need, and to forgive our sins. And, we can finish our prayer the way Jesus did — by celebrating how awesome God is!

At bedtime this week, read Matthew 6:9-13 and pray together. Pray your child will set aside time to pray daily. Pray they’ll remember the directional prayer prompts whenever they aren’t sure what to say to God.
