Free Family Devotion Resource

Since the Coronavirus is keeping families at home, I’m offering free family devotions for children’s pastors to distribute to parents of their students. These devotions are from Building Foundations Curriculum and are copyrighted. They are only meant as a free resource during this time. Do not sell or publish this resource.

I will be distributing one week of devotions every Friday. The first series of devotions comes from The Journey: The Road (A series on the Romans Road).

The Road Lesson 2: The Wide Road and the Narrow Road Family Devotion Handout

Memory Verse:  Romans 6:23   For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Summary: In our society today, there are few consequences for sin. Politicians can break the law and still hold office. Sports figures are idolized no matter how they live their personal lives. Actors and actresses can live an ungodly life style and be praised for it. But with God, sin leads to eternal death. God doesn’t wink at sin, but He does provide a way of escape and eternal life through Jesus Christ. Sadly, most people will choose death.

This sheet is provided to help families with devotions to go with the lessons your children learned in children’s church this week. Included is a daily Bible reading to use for discussions.

Monday: Read Matthew 7:13-14. The wide path leads to death. The narrow path leads to life. Choose life.

Tuesday: Read 1 Samuel 13:1-15. King Saul was a bad king because he thought more of what the people wanted than what God wanted.

Wednesday: Read 1 Samuel 15:10-26. The consequences of King Saul constantly disobeying God was that he lost his kingdom.

Thursday: Read Acts 13:21-22. God gave the kingdom to David because he was a man after God’s own heart.

Friday: Read Psalm 51. One reason God choose David is because he repented of his sins.

Saturday: Read Deuteronomy 30:19. We each have a choice between life and death. God urges us to choose life.

Family Activity: Set up narrow spaces in your house or backyard to crawl through. Then go to an open area outside and have the children run. Ask your children if it was harder to crawl through those spaces than to run in the open area. Talk about how it is easier to go on a wide path, but God wants us to go on the narrow path.
