Summer Fun: Creative Ways to Talk with Your Family About God #1

Throughout the summer, I will be posting how to use typical family summer activities to talk with your family about God in a simple way.

The first activity highlights unity and individuality using S’mores.

I’m listing this as my first family activity because…well…who doesn’t LOVE a good S’more!

 S’mores

What are we using tonight to make our S’mores?

Is each ingredient we used exactly the same?

Are each of us in this family the same?

What makes each of us different?

Is every Christian the same?

What would it be like if everyone was exactly the same?

Do you think it’s important to work together to help each other in our family?

What about our church?

Why is this important?

What would happen if  you decided to make a S’more using only a graham cracker?

What about only chocolate?

Our family and our church family are alot like S’mores.

Each part of a S’more is different.

God gave you something that He gave no one else to use in just the way He wants you to use it.

When you do what you naturally love to do in the way God wants you to do it, you are living His purpose for you and showing His love.

You may have heard this verse before.

Try saying your name instead the word “you”.

Jeremiah 29:11 says: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

 

Psalm 139:13-14 says:  “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

” I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.”

You are loved by God.

This world needs what you have to give.

 

Each person in our family and our church is different too.

What happens when we all come to together and God’s love warms us?

Psalm 133 says: ” How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”

It creates something pretty darn good!

This good thing when people come together with all their differences to serve the purpose of showing God’s love is called unity.

Apart we can be a little bit good, but together we are a whole new wonderful creation!
