This weekend in CedarVille, we learned that Jesus is #1! It’s important to rest and remember that our relationship with Jesus is most important.
With your family, take time to read about Mary and Martha in Luke 10:38-42. Also take time to read the key verse from this week:
The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” –Luke 10:27
Family Discussion Questions:
Before visiting Mary and Martha, where were Jesus and the disciples planning on going? What was Mary doing? What distracted Martha? Why was Martha upset with Mary? What did Jesus say about Mary and Martha? What did Jesus say is the one thing worth being concerned about?
We learn from Mary’s example that we should make sure Jesus is #1 and we should make time every day to spend with Jesus. Mary knew that spending quality time with Jesus was important, and it’s important to spend quality time with the people in our lives, especially our families! As a family, make a list of things that your family likes to do to spend time together. Maybe you like having family dinner, going to the movies, or family game night! Now choose one thing from your list to do together, and pick a specific day to do it. Setting the day will make sure spending quality time with your family is a priority!
In CedarVille, we have the opportunity to memorize a verse and earn a special treat. It makes all the difference when families work on memorizing the verse together! This week take time to practice Colossians 3:14. The verse is found below. Check out our CedarVille.tv Facebook page for motions that can help your family learn the memory verse together!
“Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.” – Colossians 3:14
