Listen: Pay close attention as these verses from the Bible are read aloud.
This was Jesus' first miracle, and he did it in the village of Cana in Galilee. There Jesus showed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him. After this, he went with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples to the town of Capernaum, where they stayed for a few days. (CEV)
Engage: Talk about the Bible by having parents respond to children’s questions.
Child: If you were one of Jesus’ disciples, would you have needed to see a miracle in order to believe that he was God’s Son? Why or why not?
Child: What has helped you put your faith in Jesus?
Affirm: Pray for God to put his Word into action in your daily life.
Dear Lord, on our own, our faith can be shaky at times. But we know that all good things come from you. Strengthen our faith, and lead us along the path you would have us go. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Have each person in the family bless one another with these words.
May you put your faith in Jesus! Amen.
