Bedtime: Children's Reflection Questions (September 17, 2017)

During your bedtime routine, invite your children into a time of reflection about their day, maybe by saying, "Did you know that God really wants to know what happened in your day today, and that God is always listening whenever you need to tell God something?"  Then continue with these questions:

1)     What are some things that happened today that you want to tell God about?

2)     What is one happy thing that happened today? What is one sad thing that happened today?

3)     Did you see God or feel God with you when those things were happening?  Where did you see or feel God when those things happened today?

4)     Read to your children this week's scripture selection, then ask the question that follows:

Matthew 18:21-35
Peter came and said to Jesus, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.

Did anything from this story remind you of something that happened today?

5. What are some things that you want to tell God that you are grateful for today?
