What Can Parents Do This Week?
This week we taught the first lesson in a four-part series on the lives of Abraham and Sarah. The series is called “Promises.” Life circumstances and conflicts may cause broken promises we can’t avoid. We have looked at how we can firmly stand on God’s promises today, tomorrow, and forever. Your child was given a card that listed several of God’s promises. Take the time this week to review some of those promises with your child. Remind them that we can always trust the Lord to keep His Word. You could choose one to memorize together. The promises that were listed on the card are found in the following verses: Psalm 105:8; Psalm 32:7; Isaiah 41:10; Hebrews 10:23; 1 John 1:9; John 3:16; 1 John 2:25; and Philippians 4:7.
