A Time of Thanks
Lesson for the Week
Parents: Have you ever heard the saying “change that attitude to gratitude”? Don’t we all need to hear that at one point or another? We’re going to visit Leviticus, found in the Old Testament, to take a look at how the Lord gave instructions to the Israelites about a special time—The Year of Jubilee. It was important then just as it is now to be intentional about sharing our thankfulness to God.
(Supplies needed: A mason jar, scissors, ribbon, fabric, 4 cotton balls) Let’s make a gratitude jar. Here’s how it works. Your family can express what’s on their hearts for the next several days by writing down the responses to phrases such as “I am thankful for___ and “ I show God I’m thankful by_____”. If you received a craft packet, you’ll find a label for the container and a leaf to write on to get started. Decorate the jar with ribbon/supplies on hand. After the responses have been collected, set a part a special time to read them together as a family.
*Craft packets for this lesson only available in November 2020.
