Family Devotion: Remember God’s Word

spacer

by Carol Hatcher

joshua-1-8Play: Say, "I'm going to the store to buy apples." The next person says the same but adds something that starts with the letter b. Each person repeats the entire list, adding one more item in alphabetical order.

Talk: Remembering things can be difficult. One way the game helped us remember the added items was that each person repeated the list. When we say things lots of times, that helps us remember. Joshua 1:8 tells us God wants us to remember His Word, too. Thinking about the Bible, talking about what it says and singing about the Scriptures help us to remember. What is your favorite Bible verse? What does it say about God or how to live our lives?

Pray: Thank God for His Word, and ask Him to help you remember what He has said.
