Below are some devotional helps to use throughout the week. We'd love for you to use some or even all of these to review this week's story with your kids.
Dinner Time (Deep Dive)
READ the story together. (Exodus 5-12)
ASK some questions about the story.
Who were the main characters? (Pharaoh, God’s People, and God.)
What are the main story beats? (God sends Moses and Aaron to free God’s people; Pharaoh rejects their request and God sends ten plagues; God frees his people by causing the Passover to take place.)
What’s the main point? (God delivered His people and proved the He is the one true God.)
CONNECT it to the family.
We are called to worship God and God alone. We cannot allow things to come into our lives that act as gods that we worship.
God, we thank you for your love. We are grateful for your pursuit of your children. We love you Lord. Amen.
Drive Time (Quick Refresh)
ASK what story we’ve been studying this week. (The Plagues and the Passover)
See what they remember from the story – details, main points, any take away they have, etc.
REMIND them of the main point.
God delivered His people and proved that He is the one true God.
Bedtime (Soul Work)
ASK how they feel about what we’ve been learning about this week.
Why is Jesus called the Lamb of God and how does that relate to this week’s story?
Who would you say is the Lord?
How are we slaves to sin?
ENCOURAGE them about the truth of God’s promise.
God has and will deliver us, and he is the one true God.
RELATE to them.
Mom and Dad have been called to teach you how to worship the one true God and how to honor him with our every action.
PRAY for them before they go to sleep.
Breakfast Time (Daily Encouragement)
ENCOURAGE them to trust God’s promise today.
Be encouraged that God will be with you today – when things are easy and when things are hard!
PRAY for them before you drop them off to start their day.
REVIEW one of these doctrine memory questions, or the month’s memory verse by having your kids repeat it after you.
