Just a quick family devotional idea that we pulled off last week around the dinner table.
Question 1: What gifts have we been given that we think are incredibly cool?
Each person gets to share, talk about the gift and why it's cool, etc.
Follow-up: Where did those gifts come from?
Again, each person gets to remember how the gifts got there.
Scripture: James 1.17 - every good and every perfect gift comes down from above, from the Father of Lights.
Application: every gift is from God. So just as we tell others thanks, we can live as a grateful people because everything is ultimately from Him.
Question 2: What have we worked for and bought that we think is incredibly cool?
Follow-up: Where did our money to buy those things come from?
Scripture: Deuteronomy 8.18 - the ability to make wealth is a gift from the Lord.
Application: even when we get paid, it's a gift from God. So even then, gratitude is an appropriate response.
Whether we earn it or someone gives it to us, everything is a gift and God deserves our thanks.
