WHAT YOU NEED:
Supplies for something your child is good at (video games, drawing, dancing, stuffed animal arrangements, etc.)
What You Do
Ask your child to teach you how to do something they’re good at. If they don’t feel like they’re especially good at anything, help them figure out what they can do—even if they’re still learning. Maybe set up a regular time for the rest of the month for you to let them teach you, giving them the chance to be the expert!
Talk about the Bible Story
In our story today, what was Lydia good at? (Making fine purple cloth, helping others)
What are YOU good at? What do you want to get better at?
How can you use your skills and gifts to help others?
Explain to your child that God made them the way they are on purpose, for HIS purpose. God can use them—even now, when they’re young.
Extra credit if you can find a way to help your child use their skills and talents to help someone else this week!
Parent: Talk about a time when you were able to use the gifts God has given you to help others.
