Grit gets us ready for anything. ● Philippians 4:12-13, NIV
As a family, discuss a few questions together after your child watches this week’s eKidz Online episode.
Question #1: What’s the difference between being stubborn and showing grit?
Question #2: Read Philippians, 4:12-13, NIV. What do you think these Bible verses have to do with grit practice?
Question #3: How can you tell when something needs more work or when it’s actually just not good for you to keep working on it?
Question #4: Talk about a time you finished something that took a really long time or a ton of work. Were you ever tempted to quit? How did you keep going?
Grit is what keeps you going until the goal is done. It’s choosing to face setbacks instead of taking shortcuts. It’s not just working hard; it’s being passionate about what you’re tackling.
You don’t have to shy away from the hard things, for you can do everything through the strength of Christ. This week, practice grit. It’s all about focus, failure, and follow-through — having both passion and perseverance.
