This Week in Motion :: God can help you find joy.

God can help you find joy.
Paul and Silas Are Thrown Into Prison ● Acts 16:6-40

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

Question #1: How do you usually respond when difficult or bad things happen to you?

Question #2: Let’s read Acts 27:22-24a. Here, Paul is talking to others on a ship during a terrible storm. An angel had reminded him God was with them! What things help you remember God is with you?

Question #3: Believing in God doesn’t mean bad things will happen less — but it does mean He will be with us! How does it help you to know He is with you?

Question #4: Think of a challenge you don’t want to face alone. How can you remember God is with you when you face that challenge?

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: Acts 16: 16-40— As you read the passage, think about what brings you joy.

Ask: Think of a time when you felt stuck. How did you find joy in the middle of your situation?

Yak: Share what you read with someone. How does this verse help you build your faith?
