Hands-On Faith - Week of November 9, 2015

Hands-on Faith for Families– week of November 9, 2015

Theme:Giving Thanks with Our Lives

You Can Bless Others

Scripture:Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” (Luke 6:28) ESV.

Play: Using the letters of each person’s name, give compliments that begin with each letter. For example: Sam could be s-weet, a-wesome, m-arvelous.

Talk: Compliments are one way to bless others. Ephesians 4:29 says our words should build up others. When we are mad at someone, we sometimes say unkind things, but the Bible teaches us to bless people — even those who hurt us (Luke 6:28). Just as we thought of kind words to describe members of our family, we can find ways to build others up and bless them. Who would you like to bless through kind words?

Pray: Ask God to help you see others as He sees them and to give you a heart of compassion for those who do not have a relationship with Him.
