A Family that Shares
Week #8
OBJECTIVE: To read and discuss what God says about sharing.
Feasting on the Word:
John 6:1-13
Romans 12:13 and Hebrews 13:16
Acts 4:32-35
Family Discussion:
Why was there a crowd of people following Jesus? What did Jesus ask
Philip?
What did Philip reply? What food did Andrew find among the people?
Who’s lunch was it? What did Jesus do with his lunch?
How many people were fed because the little boy shared his lunch? Did
everyone get enough to eat? How much food was left over?
Can you make dinner-for-one become enough food to feed more than
5,000 people? Why not? How was Jesus able to do it?
What does Romans 12:13 say about sharing? How does God feel when we
share with others, according to Hebrews 13:16?
When the church began, the believers were united like one big happy
family. What did they do, according to Acts 4:32? The next verses tell us
that there were no needy persons among them. Why not?
What else can you share besides material things? Your time? Your love?
What else? The best thing of all that anyone can share is the good news of
Jesus Christ!
Challenge:
Discuss some ways that your family can share with others. Plan a sharing
project, such as giving some of your clothes to an organization that helps
the needy. Maybe you could donate cans of food, as well. Can you think of
other ways to share?
Family Project: Take time to work on your family project. (Refer to list.)
