Parents, your child heard that people can make good choices. Samson did not choose to make good choices. He chose to sin or to disobey God. Every day your family has the choice to obey or disobey God. What will you choose?
Our Daily Bible Reading today is a great reminder that we have to put into action. What can you do today that puts others before yourself? Remember our Life Point for the week is: People can make good choices.
“Discernment doesn’t promise us ease. Whatever your item might be, discernment doesn’t promise you success. Getting discernment doesn’t promise you that you’re gonna be rich and famous. That’s not the goal of discernment.” You can listen to the podcast “What is Discernment and How Do I Get Some?” from Melissa Kruger here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/podcasts/tgc-podcast/what-is-discernment-and-how-do-i-get-some/
If a person is completely invested in this life alone, the response to the inevitable trials and tribulations of life is often anger, sorrow, and despair. Because the Christian is invested in eternal life in the kingdom of God that is to come, he or she has hope, knowing that the trials of this life are only temporary and will one day give way to a life of eternal joy and peace.

How are you obeying our Unit Verse in your daily life? God wants you to make choices that honor Him. Ask your child what instructions are harder to follow than others and work through it together.
