WEEK 2: PLAY - NATIONAL FLIP FLOP DAY (JUNE 16)
CHALLENGE: First, grab some flip-flops. (Find some you already have, buy some at the dollar store, or cut-out some paper ones.) Then get paper, scissors, a pen, and your Bible. You will cut the paper into strips and write a Bible verse on each strip of paper. You could write some verses like: Philippians 2:3-4, Luke 6:45, John 14:27, Philippians 4:4, or other verses your family might know. Make sure to write at least two different verses for each child. In this challenge, you will be playing a game of freeze tag, but with your flip-flops. You will tag each other with the flip-flops, and to become unfrozen, you must either recite a Bible verse from memory, or read off two Bible verses from the ones you wrote down. As the game goes on, you can re-read some of the verses from the strips of paper, but challenge yourself and your kids to recite some from memory.
READ: Romans 12:2
- What does it mean to conform to the pattern of this world? (Breakdown this phrase with your child, and as you do so, use the flip-flops as an example. We don’t want to flip-flop back and forth between what the world tells us is right, and what God tells us is right.)
- How can we be transformed by the renewing of our minds? (By reading and memorizing God’s Word.) With your child, pick a new Bible verse you all want to start memorizing together.
- How will we be able to test and approve God’s perfect will? (Because we sought the Word, and His Word is His perfect will.)
- Pray with your child that God will help your family memorize and write more of His Word on your hearts so that your minds will be transformed.
