Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of December 12, 2016
Theme: God’s Gifts to Us
God Gives Me Strength
Scripture: I can do all things through Him Who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13 ESV).
Play: Start a rhyming game of true statements beginning with I can . . . “I can tie my shoe.” The next person might say, “I can sing louder than you.” Have each person offer a statement using a new rhyming word.
Talk: Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” God gives us the ability to tie our shoes, sing and ride bikes. He even helps us do harder things, such as forgiving someone who’s hurt us or admitting when we’re wrong. God gives us a helper who strengthens us to do these things — the Holy Spirit. What are some things you need help with now?
Pray: Pray Philippians 4:13, substituting each family member’s name in place of the I. “Carol can do everything through Him who gives her strength . . ."
