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 ~ Taking care of others is an important part of being a Christian. Jesus points out this can be done any day, including Sundays, as it is vital work.Which one of you who has a sheep that falls into a pit on the Sabbath will not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable a person is than a sheep. So it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath. ~ Matthew 12:11-12
Littles ~ If you were watching over some sheep and one fell into a hold, what would you do?
Middles ~ Can you give an example of a way we can serve others?
Bigs ~ What is some way our family can serve others today?
Moms ~ Talk about a service project in which you participated that made a lasting impression on you.
