SUNDAY MAY 3RD
Discuss these questions together as a family:
Where did Joel visit?
What two hall of fames did Joel learn about? (agriculture and Hebrews 11 Hall of Faith)
What are some ways we can live by faith?
Read Hebrews 11 together as a family. If you have younger children who are struggling to pay attention or understand, try telling the Bible story in your own words.
The entire 11th chapter of Hebrews is a beautiful story of many people of the Old Testament who had faith. Most verses start with ‘By faith’ (this person did something). You can see a pattern. Each person had faith in God and they obeyed God because of their faith. It wasn’t just about having faith, but the focus was also on what the faith produced.
Reread Hebrews 11:7 and discuss the following questions:
Who was mentioned in this verse? (Noah)
What was Noah warned about? (what was not yet seen)
What happened because of Noah’s faith? (He became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.)
Noah’s story is a perfect example of faith in action. His faith led him to obey. Noah had to act, even when others thought he was wrong or crazy.
Use the bible story picture to engage your child as you tell them the story about some people in the Bible that showed they had great faith.
