Gracious Lord God, you made us, and you made everything that we see around us. We love you! Help us to remember to put you first in our lives. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Listen: Listen carefully as these verses from the Bible are read aloud.
The Lord is great and deserves our greatest praise! He is the only God worthy of our worship. Other nations worship idols, but the Lord created the heavens.
Engage: Talk about the Bible by having parents respond to children’s questions.
Child: Why do you think the psalmist says that God deserves our greatest praise? What are some ways we can praise God?
Child: Can you list some of the ways that God has blessed you?
Affirm: Pray for God to put his Word into action in your daily life.
Lord God, open our eyes, so that we can see you at work in the world. Help us to never take for granted our freedom to publicly worship you and give you praise. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Have each person in the family bless one another with these words.
May you truly count your blessings today. Amen.
