This weekend in CedarVille, we learned that God Has a Plan for Me! God has a special plan for your life, and He wants to use you to do great things.
As a family, read about John the Baptist in Matthew 3. Also take time to read the key verse from this week found in 1 Corinthians 2:9:
“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.’”
Family Discussion Questions:
What did John the Baptist tell people to do? For whom was John preparing a way? What did John wear and eat? Which important person did John baptize? How does the story of John’s life show that God had a plan for him? Whose plan is better: ours or God’s? How is God’s plan for our lives better than our own plan?
God had a special plan for John the Baptist. John helped prepare the way for Jesus to come to Earth so he could be our Forever Friend if we ask! Just like John the Baptist, God has a special plan for each of our lives. As a family, write down some of your favorite memories and some memories you’d like to make together in the future. Hang these somewhere in your house as a reminder of the great things God has done and the good things God could have in store for your family in the future!
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 Philippians 4:4-5. The verse is found below. Check out our CedarVille.tv Facebook page for motions that can help your family learn the memory verse together!
“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again — Rejoice!” – Philippians 4:4
“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again — Rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.” – Philippians 4:4-5
