Tuesday Family Devotion - The Word

These initial devotions were written for the Feeding Faithful Families classes in 2006-2007The over all theme was The Word.

God’s Word

Scripture Reading - Psalm 119:105
Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Thought of the Day
When I spend the night at someone’s house I am always grateful when they choose to leave a light on in the bathroom down the hall. It is difficult to wake up and not know where I am or to be able to see my path before me. Life can be like this sometimes as well. Sometimes when things seem dark and we don’t know where we are going it can be scary and unnerving. Psalm 119 reminds us that God’s Word acts as a lamp showing us where to go. When we don’t know what to do, we can turn to the Bible to find direction. God gave us his Word to light our way.

Discussion questions
1. Turn out the lights in your room. What would it be like if the room were always dark? What would it be hard to do in this room when it is dark?

2. Light a candle (Or turn the lights back on). How is the room different now? What could you do in this room now?

3. Since the Bible is God’s Word, how can we use it to “light our way?”

Dear God,
Thank you for lighting our way and making it easier to see the paths we are walking down. When things become dark in our lives help us turn to your Word to bring light to the situation. We know that we can do more in the world when we are in the light rather than the dark. AMEN.
