Hands-on Faith for Families
Week of March 23, 2015

Theme: Christian Armor
Shield of Faith

Play: Each time you say a word that represents something your kids should avoid (lying, stealing, hating), have them cross their arms in the air in front of them (as if to protect themselves).

Talk: Before David faced Goliath, he was given a coat of armor to protect himself against the giant. But David chose to face the giant without physical armor — or a shield. Instead, his trust was in God. God became David’s shield that day and protected him from danger. Ephesians 6:16 encourages us to use our faith in God as a shield against temptation. How can our faith in God protect us as we face temptations?

Pray: Thank God for being your shield as you put your trust in Him.
