The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Faith
This Sunday Discovery Point:
In today's lesson we learned that Daniel was one of the many great men of faith. Although he knew that disobeying a decree meant death, he would not give up his faith, even for his own life. Having faith in God means to allow Him to control our lives. If we faithfully obey and give Him our praise, He will give us the courage to do whatever He wants us to do, or go wherever He wants us to go. (Scripture used: Daniel 6:6-24)
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." James 1:2-3 NIV
Memorize this verse with your child. Discuss what it means to be saved by grace through faith, which is a gift from God.
Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Discuss some of the many things in which we put our faith or trust in, on a daily basis. Some examples would include:
1) We have faith that the chair will not collapse when we sit on it.
2) We have faith that the brakes will work on our bike or car.
3) We have faith that the traffic lights are working properly.
4) We have faith that the bridge will not collapse when we drive over the river.
Read Hebrews chapter 11 with your child. Discuss the importance of putting our trust in God and putting our faith into action.
Dear God Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth, let us reflect upon the ways You have helped your people in the past, as You have shown us throughout Your Word, the Bible. Please give us wisdom to trust You in this way today and put our faith in action as those who have come before us have done. Help us be strong people of faith as we place our complete trust in You. We prasie You and thank You for your goodness and mercy. In Jesus' name, Amen.
