April 22 | Thankfulness

Today’s Reading:

Read Psalm 92

Can you think of a special day that we celebrate when we thank God for all that He has done for us? Did you say Thanksgiving?  Such a good answer, but guess what?   We can take time every day to thank God for all that He does for us.  Stop right now and share with someone in your family something that you are thankful for. 

As you read Psalm 92, what are some things David lists being thankful for?  Read the chapter out loud and every time you hear something that we should thank God for, clap your hands or shout, “Thank you, God!” 

How many times did you clap?  What are some of the things you clapped for?  Did you clap for God’s faithful love in the morning and His faithfulness at night?  What about the works of God’s hands? Did you shout, “Thank you, God!” when you read about how God is our rock?There are so many things that God has done and is doing for us that we can be thankful for. 


Set a timer for 60 secondsChallenge everyone in your family to make a list or draw a picture of as many things as they can think of that they can thank God forSpend some time as a family thanking God for all that He has done, all that He is doing, and all that He will do!

April Memory Verse:

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.

Romans 10:9-10

Using the daily reading prompts from George H. Guthrie’s Read the Bible for Life, here’s how to use this devotional:
  1. Bring your Bible!  Your kids need to see that everything you are reading to them or learning about comes from an actual Bible!
  2. Each day starts with a reading prompt.  Read the selection as a family.  If your kids are readers, encourage them to read along with you.
  3. After you’ve read the passage, read the short devotional thought that goes along with each passage.
  4. Prayer and application are important any time we read God’s word!  After each devotional, there is a challenge to help apply what your family has read that day.
  5. There is a reading for six days of the week.  The last reading of the week is a Gospel Conversation Prompt to help you connect the reading from the week with God’s plan for salvation.
