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!
Focus ~ In this question, Jesus is actually reproaching some towns who have done bad things and whose people will not go to Heaven unless they repent and reform. These were towns were Jesus taught, but after He left, they did not change their lives to follow His teachings. Even if our world, our country, or our city does not, our family tries to follow Jesus' teachings, and we hope one day to be exalted to heaven.Will you be exalted to heaven? ~ Matthew 11:23
Littles ~ What is Heaven?
Middles ~ What do you think Heaven will be like?
Bigs ~ What do you think Heaven will be like?
Moms ~ Talk about how we get to Heaven. What do we need to believe? What do we need to do?
