Worship + Bible story video
Parent discussion guide
DO: Gather a bag or container that you can’t see through. Inside, place 3 different food items for your child to eat that they will recognize and enjoy.
SAY: God loves us and promises to help us. In Hebrews 13:6 says, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. People can do nothing to me.” That is a verse to help us remember we can have courage any time we are afraid.
We are going to continue talking about what courage is, but you can practice showing courage by closing your eyes after each question and allowing me to put a mystery piece of food in your mouth. Ready?
Who has courage in the Bible Story to do the right thing? (Joshua and Caleb had courage, let’s practice courage right now, close your eyes, open your mouth and I’ll put a piece of food in your mouth for you to try.)ASK:
When you need courage, what should you do? (You should do the right thing and know God will help you. Go ahead and close your eyes again and open your mouth for another surprise piece of food!)ASK:
Is there someone you can think of that has courage? How have they shown courage? (Could be a person they know or a character in a book or movie. Then have them close their eyes one last time and eat the final piece of food.)SAY:
You showed courage when you said you would try a new food, even though you did not know what was inside the bag. Today, we talked about how we can bust our fears by having courage. Courage is doing the right thing, knowing God will help you! Let’s thank God right now for helping us when we need courage. PRAY:
Share as a family anything you want to talk to God about. Then pray together about those things. Ask God to give each of you courage to do what is right and thank God for always being with you. Check out
