GRADES 9-12 | Jesus' Family Tree
We’re continuing our series focusing on the theme “Friends and Family.” By studying different Scripture passages, students are discovering the eternal value of relationships with God and with one another. In this second lesson, we explored Matthew 12:46-50, where Jesus’ teaching is interrupted by the arrival of his mother and brothers, who want to speak to him. Jesus uses this opportunity to invite the crowd to become part of his heavenly family by saying, “Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!”
This week, we hope you’ll consider spending a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. You can build your conversation around one or all of these questions:
GRADES 6-8 | Where Things Went Wrong
We’re continuing our series on the book of Genesis. Starting at the beginning of the Bible allows us to see how God intended things to be, what went wrong, and how God launched a plan to make things right.
Our second conversation focused on Genesis 3, where Adam and Eve gave in to the temptation to sin. Even though God had perfectly shown his love and protection, Adam and Eve put their trust in the crafty serpent—they chose to believe the lie that God was holding out on them. Adam and Eve both chose to sin and disobey God. And their choice to trust the serpent instead of trusting God resulted in destructive decisions and separation from God.
This week, I encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider fueling your conversation with these questions:
