Family Faith Talks Conversation Starters:

Jaunary 30 Family Faith Talk: Jesus wanted His friends to sere others. Serving other means being kind and helpful to others. What are some ways you can serve others? (Help Mom by obeying her. Help a brother or sister do his or her chores.)

February 6 Family Faith Talk: What did the father do when his son came home? (Showed him love and gave him good things.) We show God's love when we are kind to people in our families and forgive them. What is a way to show kindness to someone in your family? (Let a brother or sister go first playing a game. Help Mom set the table for dinner.)

February 13 Family Faith Talk: How did Jesus show that He loves children? (He told His helpers to let the children come to Him.) Every day, Jesus loves us and cares for us. One way Jesus shows His love is by giving us people to care for us. What are some other ways Jesus shows love for us? (Listens when we pray. Helps us to do good things.)

February 20 Family Faith Talk: What did the king do to be kind? (He forgave the man who owed him money.) We can show God’s love and kindness when we forgive others. When is a time you could forgive someone? (When someone won’t wait their turn. When someone takes a toy away. When someone says mean things.)

February 27 Family Faith Talk: Who helped the hurt man? (The Samaritan.) We show God’s love when we help others. When is a time someone might need help at the park? (When someone falls off the swings. When a ball rolls away.) What is a way to help that person? (Help that person stand up and get back on the swings. Rolls the ball back to the person who is playing with it.)

March 6 Family Faith Talk: What did the shepherd do when he found his sheep? (Lifted it to his shoulders and took the sheep home.) Jesus told the story of the kind, loving shepherd to help us know that God is kind and living, too. And God wants us to show love and kindness to each other. What is one way someone showed love to you today?
