April 7 | Week 14 Gospel Conversation Opportunity


Read I Samuel 16:7 

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or his stature because I have rejected him. Humans do not see what the Lord sees, for humans see what is visible, but the Lord sees the heart.” 

Show your kids several faces of people. Choose online photos or cut some out of magazines. Let them look at the faces and choose who they think is a good guy and who is a bad guy. The truth is, we can only look at the outside, but God can see their hearts, and He knows whether or not they love Him. 

Talk about the fact that God looks at our heart- what is on the inside- not what is on the outside.  God’s desire is for our hearts to live surrendered to Him.  How can we show God that He has our hearts?

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.
