Jesus' Questions: Day 1

I'm trying something new this Lent. My goal is to find a simple way to talk about living our faith with my children on a daily basis, outside of our (more) formal studies of Scripture and Catechism. This series is based on the questions Jesus asks within the Gospel of Matthew. I am brainstorming here some ways to discuss these passages with each of my children and am sharing with you in hopes that you and your children might be blessed by daily faith sharing. If you try this with your children, I would love to hear about your conversations in the comments!

You are salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. ~ Matthew 5:13
Focus ~ Each one of us has been blessed with an amazing gift! We have the possibility to be spiritually united with Christ every day. Our lives are called to be a constant reflection of His incredible love to everyone. We can be the flavor of the world, setting the tone for everything that happens around us.

Littles ~ Does food taste better or worse with salt? What can you do today to make someone's day  better?

Middles ~ Do you reflect Christ's love to others? How can your attitude bring joy or discouragement to those around you today?

Bigs ~ How strong is your spiritual life? Are you full of flavor? How can you enhance your relationship with Christ today?

Moms ~ Tell about a time when your spiritual life was dry. How did you resurrect it?
