This Week in Motion Elementary :: You can help others make peace.

March series: Throughout scripture, we can see how peace is something near to God’s heart. Even though people chose to break their relationship with God, God made a way to fix that relationship through Jesus. And because we reflect God’s image, making peace with others should be a priority for us as well. When we choose to make peace with others, we’re demonstrating that God’s love can transcend our personal opinions and help us work together in spite of our differences. Choosing peace is a way for God’s family to make an impact in the world.

You can help others make peace.
Abigail Intervenes1 Samuel 25:1-35

In 1 Samuel 25:1-35, we find a story about a woman named Abigail. We read how King David was furious with a man named Nabal who had mistreated his men. David decided to get revenge… until Nabal’s wife, Abigail, intercepted him, apologized, and offered gifts as a way to make peace. Even though Abigail wasn’t responsible for her husband’s offense, she realized she could play a role in making peace. 

Engage in everyday moments together this week: 

  • Morning time: As your kid starts their day, tell them about a way you saw them help someone and how much you admire it.
  • Mealtime: At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “How can you help someone else make peace?”
  • Drive time: While on the go, ask your kid, “Have you seen anyone help to make peace lately in a tricky situation? What did they do?” (And if not, ask if they saw someone who didn’t make peace lately.)
  • Bedtime: Pray for each other: “God, help us to be peacemakers. And when we are, may others not see how great we are, but how great You are.”
