Devotions, Tips, and Activities
By Michael and Tiffany Ross
He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
Gather some rocks from your yard. Examine them together and discuss their characteristics.
Talk It Out
· What are some things that are made of rock? (Mountains, statues, pyramids.)
· How long do you think it would take for a rock to change?
· How can God be your rock?
· Does this change your image of God?
Emphasize the importance of building our lives on the solid rock of Christ’s teachings in the Bible. Read the parable about the wise and foolish builders: “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash” (Matthew 7:24–27).
Talk to God
As you pray, encourage your child to (1) praise God that He is perfect and strong, and (2) thank Jesus for His faithfulness.
