Where we're headed next time
Big Idea: God is Love (part 1)
Acts 11v19–30. The apostles shared God’s love with the people in Antioch, and many of them decided to follow Jesus. As Barnabas and Paul returned to teach, God’s love prompted the church in Antioch to help provide for the people in Jerusalem who were facing a famine.
Dig into God’s Word.
Read Acts 11v27–30. Remind your child that it was God’s love that prompted the church in Antioch to want to help their brothers and sisters in Jerusalem.
Connect as a family
Praise your child’s effort to help with housework and remind him that helping your family honors God.
Discuss these ides together:
Why were the people in Antioch taking care of each other?
The people loved God and others, just as God had asked them to.
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
Open a Bible and read Psalm 36v7a: “How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!”
