Challenge:
Have you had times in which you had to take a stand for God, even though
you knew others would give you a “hard time” for it? Allow time so that each
family member can share their experiences. What is it that helps us make it
through the “persecution” of others? What was it that saved Daniel? (Trusting
God) Do we trust God enough to take a stand when we know that the world
will persecute us?
Family Project: Take time to work on your family project. (Refer to list.)
