This Week in Motion :: Choose joy no matter what’s going on.

Choose joy no matter what’s going on. ● Acts 5:17-42

As a family, discuss a few questions together after your child watches this week’s Motion episode.

Question #1: What is joy? How is joy different from happiness?

Question #2: When are some times it’s easy to have joy? When are some times it’s hard to have joy?

Question #3: Read Acts 5:17-20. The apostles were having a hard time because many people were mad at them, but they still chose joy and shared about Jesus. What are some ways you can choose joy when you’re having a hard time?

Question #4: When you choose to have joy, what are some ways that can make a difference for the people around you?

Read the Bible — by yourself and with others. Try different translations. Set aside a special, quiet time to dive in.
Ask questions to help you understand — who’s the author, who are they writing to, and how does this part of the Bible point you toward Jesus?
Yak — share about what you’re learning and what God is showing you, especially with friends who don’t have a relationship with Jesus or want to learn more about Him.

This week:

Read: Romans 12:12 — Write down what the verse means to you!

Ask: How can you choose joy no matter what?

Yak: Share what you read with someone. What’s one way they remember to have joy in hard times?
