It’s important to teach kids to respond to God’s Word every time they read it. A response can be a question, something that made you smile, or another story in the Bible, this reminds you of. Responding to God’s Word can also be something you do: acting out what you read, building the story out of Legos, or praying about something God said. There are no right or wrong answers, it’s about teaching your children to read God’s Word and respond to Him. Each week we will post new questions and activity ideas to get you started. Don’t feel pressured to get through them all– just pick a few that fit your family and see how they lead to great conversations about who Jesus is!
2 Corinthians 11
- Bible Project: Watch this video as a family to learn what this letter to the church in Corinth was all about. You can also click on the poster button under the video to print and color in while you watch.
- Supporting Jesus Kingdom: In 2 Cor 1:7-11, Paul reminds the people in Corinth how much the church in Macedonia gave money so they could hear about Jesus in Corinth. Talk about how when we give to support missions it helps people all over the word hear about Jesus. Pray as a family what you should give to help people hear Jesus name all over the world.
- Masquerade Mask: In 2 Cor. 11: 12-15 Paul talks about how some people in Corinth were pretending to follow Jesus but were really masquerading as Jesus followers. Talk about a time you felt someone (or yourself) was being fake in obeying Jesus. Grab a paper plate and cut out eye and mouth holes and then decorate your mask.
- Basket Challenge: In 2 Cor. 11:33 Paul reminds the Corinthians about a time he had to escape in a basket out a window. Work as a family to create a basket for Paul to escape in out of legos (or magnatiles, paper, or playdough). Talk about a time you were scared and didn’t know what would happen next.
