Sunday Scripture Sharing - Family Devotional on making plans

Today's Topic is:

Praying about plans

Ask your children, "What is a plan?" Then talk with them until they understand the concept and what it means to "have plans".

Together with your children come up with a list of things they want to do over the summer. Write down everyone's ideas. Include things like activities, trips, camps, classes, or skills they'd like to learn. Be creative, and maybe even include something like, "Have ice cream for dinner!"


Proverbs 19:21, "Many plans are in a man's heart, But the counsel of the LORD will stand."

Say, "I'm so glad we have this list so we can try to do things this summer that we will enjoy!" But, we should pray about these plans. It is very important that when we have plans for our lives that we pray and ask God what He wants us to be doing. Then when we know God's plans for us, we can pray for Him to help us accomplish those plans. God is the only one who can make these plans happen!

Dear God, show us what plans you have for us this summer. Help us to have fun as a family but also be glorifying you this summer. Amen.
