This week your family will GET INTO 1 Peter 5:6-7. You’ll discover that when we HUMBLE ourselves under God’s authority, He’ll HONOR us. And did you know we can GIVE all our WORRIES and CARES to Him—that He wants us to do that? That’s great news in these challenging times!
So, gather your family, cue up the video, and … GET INTO IT.
After the video remind your family that this week, you’ll TALK IT UP and ACT IT OUT together. You’ll look for examples of people who HUMBLED themselves and were HONORED because of it. And you’ll share the WORRIES and CARES in your life that you can GIVE to God!
As you TALK IT UP this week, jot down ideas your family has for ways to ACT OUT the truths of 1 Peter 5:6-7. And TALK IT UPWARDS too! Pray together, thanking God for His Word and asking for His help as you ACT IT OUT.
