God uses fire and clouds to show Moses and the Israelites the right way to go. (Exodus13:21-22)
In the Parable of the Two Sons, a father asked his sons to do some work (Matthew 21:28-32). One said “yes” but didn’t follow through with his actions. The other said “no” at first, but ended up completing the job anyway. We’ll discover that it’s important to do what you say you will. Our Bottom Line is: Show you can be trusted by what you do. You can’t just say you’ll do something; you actually have to do it.
Each day’s devotion includes:
1. a verse(s) to read
2. a devotion paragraph that teaches something about God and an explanation of today’s verse(s)
3. an activity that makes real-life application of the day’s devotion
4. a suggested prayer.
Encourage kids to choose four different days during the week to do these devotions. Even though kids in early elementary are beginning to read things on their own, you may want to do the GodTime card with your K-3rd grade child. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still benefit from an adult following up on it.
