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 May 18, 2015

Theme: Kindness

God Is Kind

Play: Fill a bowl with a bag of your family’s favorite small treats. As a family, take turns sharing ways God has been kind to you today. Enjoy a piece of candy for each example given.

Talk: God’s kindness can be personal, meant especially for one person. David experienced God’s kindness, and he praised God for it, saying, “He reached down from on high and took hold of me” (Psalm 18:16).

God’s kindness may also affect many people in a particular way. God shows His kindness through the ongoing provision described in Acts 14:17: “He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons.”

God’s kindness is part of His nature. It’s easy to overlook the everyday expressions of His kindness, but as you intentionally look for them, you become more aware of God's love.

Pray: Ask God to help you notice the ways He is kind to you and to others.
