Key Scriptures: Genesis 6:9-9:17
God is sad the world is full of evil. So he decides to flood it and start over again. He chooses Noah to build an ark and save his family, plus animals and birds. After a long time on the ark, Noah and his family step into a fresh start in the world. God gives us do-overs.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”Genesis 1:1
Family Together Time
Show your family God’s do-overs with this affirming experience.
- For each person, cover a plain white index card with clear packing tape.
- Gather everyone together, and have paper towels handy.
- Everyone can use dry-erase markers to scribble or mark X’s on a card to represent something they’d like a do-over for.
- Talk about what your scribbles or X’s represent.
- After each person shares, someone else in the family can erase that person’s card with a paper towel and say, “God gives you a do-over, and so do I.”
