November Series: Gratitude sometimes feels like a lost art, yet gratitude is an idea close to God’s heart. Think about all of the Bible stories where people gave thanks to God. The Israelites celebrated God with feasts and festivals. The writers of the psalms wrote songs of praise to thank God for being faithful. Throughout this month, we hope kids will learn to be grateful for everything God has done. When we remember all of these things, we can always be thankful.

Make a habit of being grateful.
The Lord’s Supper/Passover ● 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Exodus 12
In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul talks about taking time to celebrate Communion, or the Lord’s Supper. When we eat the bread and drink the cup, we celebrate how Jesus lived, died, and rose again to make us right with God. As we think about what Paul wrote, we’ll also take time to remember that this celebration is rooted in the Passover celebration, where God’s people remembered how God rescued them from being enslaved in Egypt.
Engage in everyday moments together this week:
- Morning Time: As your kid starts their day, try to make them laugh. Tell a joke, or show them a funny meme or video. Recall a funny family memory.
- Meal Time: At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “What are some ways as a family we can always celebrate the things we are grateful for — not just at Thanksgiving?”
- Drive Time: While on the go, ask your kid: “What is something or someone that has made you happy lately?” (Maybe it’s a high score on a game or someone who made you laugh.)
- Bed Time: Pray for each other: “God, may we be known as a family that is grateful for the things You and others have done for us.”
