From: 101 Ways to Strengthen the Parent‐Child Connection

Devotions, Tips, and Activities

By: Michael and Tiffany Ross


For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

COLOSSIANS 1:16–17



Family Quest

Build two identical houses out of craft sticks. Glue one of them together but leave the other unglued. Discuss how God created our world and continues to hold it together.


Talk It Out

· Which house would be better to live in?

· Did God’s work end after He created the world? What is God’s work today?

· Does He ever leave us?


Parent-Child Connection

Likely your child will ask, “If God can keep everything together, then why do things fall apart sometimes?” And this is a very good question. This is a good time to discuss “free will.” Because we live in a world where humans get to make choices, they will sometimes make poor decisions. Because of this brokenness, our world doesn’t always work the way God wishes. But instead of making everyone follow Him, He gives us the choice. We can trust that He always wants the best for us.


Talk to God

As you pray, encourage your child to (1) thank Jesus for being so big and mighty and (2) ask the Lord to help him appreciate what He has done for him.
