Key Verse
“But encourage one

that none of you may
be hardened by sin’s
(Hebrews 3:13)

We learned this week that we’re called to encourage each other daily in our
faith (Acts 11:19-26). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at
home with this easy idea:

Parents: Share a time that each of your children did something to encourage you.
Maybe one of them gave you a hug when you needed it most or told you how

time, being a good listener, or offering to help out. Talk about why it’s important
to encourage each other and other Christians in our faith. Commit to one way
you can encourage people this week. 

Pray: God, thank you for the people around us who see us and love us enough to
encourage us when we’re struggling. Show us how to reach out and encourage
other Christians to continue to seek and follow you. In Jesus’ name, amen. 

Our family thanks God for:
