Sunday Scripture Sharing - Family Devotional #10

Today's Topic is:

God's word should guide us.

How would you feel if you were walking a path at night and you could not see because it was too dark? Do you think it would be easy to walk without light? What could you do to make it better? (answer: get a flashlight)

In a dark room or outside at night first have children try to walk a path without a flashlight or lantern. Then give them a light and have them walk the same path.


Psalm 119:105, "Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path."

What is God's word? (answer = the Bible) The Bible can show us the way just like the flashlight helped us walk in the dark. The Bible tells us things we should and should not do. Our flashlight can show us sticks on the ground that we might trip on and fall down and the Bible shows us bad things we could do that will make our lives unhappy. It helps us know things even though we cannot see them with our eyes, things like God will always love us and never leave us. When we can't see the way in life, we can pray and read our Bibles and ask God to show us what He wants us to do. Did you feel better walking in the dark without the light or with it? I feel better walking through life with the help of God's word!

Dear God, thank you for you word! Help us to remember to use it to guide us. Amen.
