Read: Matthew 14:13-21 as a Family

Family Activity: Set a cracker on the table. Ask your kids if the cracker would be enough to feed your family. Review the Bible story in Matthew 14:13-21. Allow kids to list some things your family needs on a regular basis. Lead your family in a time of prayer, thanking God for His provision and asking Him to continue to provide for your family’s needs.

Family Discussion Starters:

  • What does this story teach me about God or the gospel?
  • What does this story teach me about myself?
  • Are there any commands in this story to obey? How are they for God’s glory and my good?
  • Are there any promises in this story to remember? How do they help me trust and love God?

Read: Matthew 13:1-23 as a Family  

Family Activity: Review the four types of soil from the parable of the sower. Encourage your kids to think about how they have responded to the gospel—the good news about Jesus. Lead them to write which type of soil shows how they have responded. Pray together, asking God to help kids believe the truth about Jesus and share the gospel with others.
