Read This:
If you want to hear from God, you need to read the message He’s sent you. Psalm 119:97-104

Remember This:
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Think About This:
When you get a notification, don’t you always have a tendency to check what the message is? If somebody sends you a text, you’re going to read it. You may not respond, but you’ll read it. If somebody tags you on Instagram, you’re going to check it out. You may not like it, but you’ll at least look at it.

When it comes to our relationship with God, many of us want to hear from God - but despite the fact that we have a text message from him, we often don’t ever read it. But if you want to hear from God, you should probably start with reading the message he’s sent.

Parent Cue:  Drive Time
Make sure your kid has a tablet or smart phone to use and while you’re driving, pick a Bible verse together as a family that you’d like to challenge the family to translate into emojis (for example: “In the beginning __ created the __ & the __.” - Genesis 1:1. Other suggestions: John 3:16, Ephesians 3:17-18, Ephesians 4:8)

Screenshot the best translation and save it as your lock screen for a week.
