This weekend in CedarVille, we learned that God keeps his promises. Even when it’s hard, we should be patient and trust in God’s promises because God is trustworthy.
As a family read about Abraham’s life (Genesis 17:1-7, 18:1-19, 21:1-7). Since there are a few chapters to read, try reading a little section each day! Also take time to read the key verse from this week found in Psalm 145:13b:
“The LORD always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does.”
Family Discussion Questions:
What did God promise Abraham? Were Abraham and Sarah the age of normal parents? How old were they? Did God fulfill his promise? Was God’s promise fulfilled right away, or did Abraham and Sarah have to wait and be patient? Is it easy or hard for you to wait and be patient? How do you act when you have to wait for something you were promised?
Talk about some promises you have made and kept. Who did you make the promise with? Was it easy to keep your promise? Then talk about some promises people made for you and kept. Did they fulfill those promises right away? How did you feel when they kept their promise? The great thing about God is that he will always keep his promises to us, and we don’t need to worry about Him not keeping them! Take a Post-It note, and write on it “God Keeps His Promises.” Then put it somewhere you will see it often to remember that God is trustworthy!
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
