Whatever happens, remember God is still working. ● John 12:9-16
As a family, discuss a few questions together after your child watches this week’s Motion episode.
Question #1: We’re learning that hope is believing something good can come from something bad. What does it feel like when you’re facing a tough situation and you can’t see or understand what God is doing in it?
Question #2: Read John 12:9. Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead, even though it looked like a hopeless situation. What does it look like for a kid your age to have hope and trust God when going through a problem that feels hopeless?
Question #3: We all have sinned, but there’s still hope — God has a plan to save us. That’s why He sent us Jesus, so Jesus could save us and so we could have a relationship with Him! How does Jesus give us hope even though we’ve sinned?
Question #4: How does it give you hope to know that God is ALWAYS working out His plans and will NEVER stop?
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.
Read: Romans 8:28 — Write down what the verse means to you!
Ask: What does it mean that God is working for our good? How does that give you hope?
Yak: Share what you read with someone. Who can you tell about how God is always working?
