Hands-On Faith for Families Devotionals

A weekly guide to help parents raise their children with a thriving faith, from Focus on the Family

Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of July 25, 2016

Theme: The Bible Is More Than a Book

Not By Bread Alone

Scripture:Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4).

Play: Take turns thinking up the yummiest bread and the craziest fixings for a super sandwich. Consider interesting sandwich combinations such as banana bread, whipped cream and chocolate chips.

Talk: We all like eating special foods to keep our bodies healthy. But that alone won’t help us grow and become the people God wants us to be. Matthew 4:4 says that we also need the spiritual food of God’s Word, the Bible. It nourishes and strengthens our spirits, helping us to become mature followers of Christ. What has the Bible taught you that has helped you understand God better?

Pray: Ask God to help you search His Word often and rely on it for your daily growth.
