Here are the cue’s for the week of Nov 25 – Dec 1 for you and your middle school student.
God can use our daily habits to grow our faith.
Matthew 8:5-13 (NIV)
5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help.6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.
THIS WEEK’S FOCUS
Remember that your middle schooler is always watching. You’ll teach them so much about growing their faith through spiritual habits not by telling them, but by showing them as you model those habits yourself.
Send your kid an encouraging text to let them know the ways you see them pursuing a deeper and authentic faith of their own this week.
Take time to share a story with your student about someone who has impacted your faith and influenced your spiritual growth.
Do a little pre-Spring cleaning together as a family by gathering clothing, canned goods, coats, blankets, and other household items to give away to others in need. Then, drop your items off at a local charity together and maybe even decide to serve one afternoon when you do.
