This Week in Motion Elementary :: Practice living for God.

May series: Growing in faith is not something that happens by simply learning more information about the Bible. To experience faith, we need to practice our faith, and that takes commitment.

This month, we’ll help kids discover one of the best plans they can make is to commit to an ongoing relationship with Jesus. We hope they commit to practicing their faith by reading God’s Word, praying to God honestly and consistently, talking about God with others, and living for God in how they show love throughout the everyday moments of their life.

Practice living for God.
The Widow’s Offering Mark 12:41-44

We finish the month in Mark 12:41-44. Jesus noticed how wealthy people were giving lots of money at the temple. Then a poor widow walked up to the offering box and gave just two small coins. While this seemed like a small gift, Jesus told His disciples this woman actually gave more than the rich people did — because she gave everything she had. 

Family Discussion Questions:

  1. Why was the widow able to give everything she had?
  2. Does living for God cost you anything?
  3. What are some things you can do now to practice living for God?

Engage in everyday moments together this week: 

  • Morning time: As your kid starts their day, tell them an example of how you’ve seen them show love or compassion lately. 
  • Mealtime: At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “What are some ways we can practice living for God?” 
  • Drive Time: While on the go, ask your kid: “What are some ways we can show God’s love to others this week?” 
  • Bedtime: Pray for each other: “God, may we not just say that we know and love You, but may we live like we know and love You too.”
