This Week in Motion :: If you don’t understand something, ask.

If you don’t understand something, ask. Matthew 11:1-6

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

Question #1: Imagine you are sitting with Jesus. What questions would you ask Him?

Question #2: Let’s read Matthew 11:2-3. John and his friends were able to ask Jesus questions in person. Since Jesus isn’t sitting here with us, who can you go to with your questions about Him?

Question #3: Some questions have answers we can find out, and some don’t. What do we do when we have a question that doesn’t have an easy answer or can’t be answered until we’re with God in heaven?

Question #4: What things do you know are true about God? How can knowing those things help you when you have questions that are hard to answer?

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: James 1:5 — Write down what this verse means to you!

Ask: Who does this verse say we should go to when we don’t know or understand something?

Yak: Share what you read with someone. What do they do when they don’t understand something?
