God Knows Everything

HIGHLIGHTS
Last Sunday Discovery Point:
God knows everything

Last Sunday Key Verse:
“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me” (Psalm 139:1)
FAMILY DEVOTION Father Knows Best Have you ever felt that your life was unfair? Have you ever questioned God? After all the terrible things that happened, Job questioned God, too. And guess what! God answered with a few questions of his own! Read them in Job 38–41.
Go ahead, I dare you!
Finished reading? Tough questions, huh? Choose your favorite verse or two from the passage, and draw a picture of what you read. Hang your picture in your room to remind you that God knows everything and can do everything. Job discovered that God is powerful and knows things far beyond what we’ll ever know. But that’s OK—because God loves us! As a family, see if you can come up with 10 “unanswerable questions” such as “How far is it in inches to the farthest star?” After you’ve finished your list, discuss:
ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS • How do you feel…

God is Compassionate

HIGHLIGHTS
Last Sunday Discovery Point:
God is compassionate

Last Sunday Key Verse:
“The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love” (Psalm 103:8)

FAMILY DEVOTION Slow to Boil Gather the whole family together to make a spaghetti dinner together. Before you begin, let each family member guess how long it will take the water for the pasta to boil. Then begin cooking.
As you wait for the water to boil, discuss how the Bible says God is slow to anger, and how he demonstrated his compassion to the people of Nineveh.
Before you enjoy your spaghetti “worms,” thank God for being compassionate to your family. Spaghetti’s not the only thing that looks like a worm. Look for examples while you eat, thanking God for being slow to anger after each one.
FAMILY CHALLENGE Grab a pack of chenille wires (pipe cleaners) and let your family wrap some worms! Wrap them around your wrists, your pencils, and even your toothbrushes. Every time you see a wire worm this week,…

God is the Only God

HIGHLIGHTS
Last Sunday Discovery Point:
God is the only God

Last Sunday Key Verse:
“Jesus replied, ‘The most important commandment is this: “Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord” ’ ” (Mark 12:29)

FAMILY DEVOTION
Here a God, There a God, Everywhere a God, God
Most of the people the Israelites fought believed that there were all sorts of gods. They had a god for just about everything. God showed the Israelites and the people around them that there was only one true God. Check out Exodus 7:10-13 and 1 Kings 18:20-38.
Check this out:
Have each family member collect several trophies, award ribbons, or other things that are important to them. Take turns telling about what is important about each of the objects. Then talk about how these objects can or cannot help with important decisions or with being a Christian. Talk about whether these objects can do anything that God can do.
FAMILY CHALLENGE Oftentimes it’s not objects that become our idols. Today, idols can be things …

God is Unchanging

HIGHLIGHTS
Last Sunday Discovery Point:
God is unchanging

Last Sunday Key Verse:
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8)
FAMILY DEVOTION
Some Things Never Change The Bible says that God is unchanging, that he is the Alpha and Omega. (Alpha and omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet.) So it’s natural that the first and last books of the Bible tell about the beginning and the end of the world. Look at this!
Alpha and Omega Genesis Sun created Satan gets his way Sin enters the world Tears shed because of sin
Revelation Sun not needed Satan defeated Sin thrown out of the world No more tears, no more sin
This prayer is already started. Fill in the endings for yourself!
Dear God, Thanks for being the Alpha and Omega. Thank you for not changing! And thanks for creating the world. A few of my favorite things you created are
