Connect as a family
Take a short walk with your children. After your walk, find a quiet spot and read the biblical account of Paul’s conversion in Acts 9v1–18. When you finish reading, ask your children what they think Paul might have felt like when he suddenly heard from God and found himself blind. Ask them if they feel like they’ve ever heard from God. (Remind them that it’s okay if they haven’t heard from Him.)
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:
How do you think Saul might have felt while he was speaking with Jesus on the road?
Why do you think God sent Ananias to pray for Saul?
How has Jesus changed your life?
