This Week in Motion :: God can give you the strength to be gentle.

God can give you the strength to be gentle. ● Mark 10:13-16

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

Question #1: What or who comes to mind when you think of being gentle? What does being gentle mean to you?

Question #2: Read Mark 10:13-14. The disciples didn’t want to deal with the children — they weren’t strong enough to be gentle with the kids, but Jesus was. Why do we have to be strong to be gentle?

Question #3: When are some times that gentle words might be difficult? If you’re not gentle with your words and the way you treat others, what could happen?

Question #4: What are some ways we can be gentle to others?

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: Philippians 4:5 — Write down what the verse means to you!
