Noah is a great Bible Hero. You probably know most of his story. But have you ever taken the time to have a family devotion about Noah?
Noah is an example of someone who heard and listened to God’s voice. He is an example of someone who was not afraid of hard work. There were people who laughed at him. Noah made a difference in his family.
I can make a difference like Noah
Think about it
God used Noah not because he was at the right place, at the right time, but because he walked faithfully with God (for 600 YEARS!) If God wanted to use you today for something great, could He? What does it look like to walk faithfully? Choose today begin to walk faithfully with God because HE does what to use you, TODAY!
But I am just a kid……
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love,
in faith and in purity.
Read Genesis 6-9
Read the passage together, then together as a family discuss the following questions and answers.
- Where did God find Noah? (6:8)
- What are some words used to describe Noah? (6:9)
- Why do you think it would be hard for Noah to live righteous?
- Noah had specific directions from God. What do you think would have happened if he decided to do his own thing? (6:14-7:5)
Read Hebrews 11:1-2, 7
Read the passage together, then together as a family answer the following questions together.
- How would you explain what faith is?
- Why did it take faith for Noah to build the ark?
- What do you have faith for?
- Draw a picture of what you think the ark looked like. (this is a great activity to allow younger kids to participate!)
