Family life is busy, so being intentional with the time you do have is more important than ever. Table Talk helps mealtime matter — whether it’s at the soccer field, in the car, or around the table. Let this resource be a tool to connect your family and create faith-based conversations with your Quest and Motion children.
This weekend, we learned “Jesus loves us even when we do something wrong.” Zacchaeus didn’t have many friends because he cheated a lot of people out of their money. Jesus knew Zacchaeus had done wrong things, but He loved Zacchaeus anyway and treated him like a friend. We do wrong things, too, but we can trust that Jesus will never stop loving us, no matter what. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.
Question 1: Did Zacchaeus have a lot of friends? (no)
Question 2: Did Jesus know the wrong things Zacchaeus had done? (yes) Did Jesus love Zacchaeus anyway? (yes)
Question 3: Sometimes we do wrong things, too. Who will always love us, even when we do wrong things? (Jesus)
This weekend, we learned how to build friendships that last. Our friendships will never be perfect, but we can keep them strong by being ready to forgive others and by asking for forgiveness when we make mistakes. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.
Question 1: Why do we need friends? Who are some of the friends you value most?
Question 2: When is it easy to forgive someone? When is it difficult to forgive? (You can also ask them what the differences are between when it’s easy and hard to help them think about WHY it’s sometimes easy or hard to forgive others.)
Question 3: Why do other people deserve our forgiveness? (God has already forgiven us unconditionally.)
