Family Chat!

Lifting up God in our homes is not as difficult as we sometimes think.  Planning a time to simply seek the Lord can be as simple as a family conversation.  Here is a possibility for a chat time at your home!

Begin with a prayer and a scripture to start your conversation.

Psalm 19:1b The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.

And then ask open-ended questions that will get folks talking...
• How do you see God?

o Grandpa in rocking chair
o A judge waiting to punish you for sins
o Just an ‘idea’ to make people be nice
o Mother Nature
o Karma – what goes around, comes around?

And then turn to God's Word and allow Him to speak!

• How scriptures reveal God:

o Eternal (Psalm 90:2)
o Creator & Sustainer (Isaiah 40:28)
o Spirit (John 4:24)
o Truth (John 14:6)
o Loving (Jeremiah 31:3)
o Just (1 John 1:9)
o Holy (1 Peter 1:15,16)

Close your family time in prayer, simply asking God to keep each heart seeking Him!  Your family will grow closer to the Creator and closer to one another!  May God richly bless each of you.
