This weekend in CedarVille, we learned how God’s love can change us. Sometimes we make bad choices, but God’s love can change us and helps us make good choices!
As a family read about Saul’s life and how he changed his life and name (Acts 9: 1-31). Also take time to read a key verse from this weekend in James:
“ Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.”
Family Discussion Questions:
In the beginning, how did Saul treat people who followed Jesus? What happened to Saul after Jesus talked to him? What happened to Saul when Ananias came to see him? Did Saul start believing in Jesus? How did Saul change from the beginning of the story to the end?
The story of Saul shows us that God’s love can really change us! To show the change that happened in Saul’s life, draw a picture of him before he started to love God. How did Saul act? Would his face look grumpy and mean, or nice and happy? Take this picture and cover up Saul’s eyes with pieces of paper or by coloring over them. Saul was blinded so that he could eventually see God’s love! Now draw a new picture of Saul after he was no longer blind and God’s love changed him! Did he stop making bad choices? Would his face look happier now? God’s love changed Saul, and God’s love can change us too! We can start making good choices because of God’s love and follow Him!
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 Galatians 5:22-23 NLT. The verse is found below. Check out our CedarVille.tv Facebook page for motions that can help your family learn the memory verse together!
“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” – Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
