Get comfy and everyone takes it in turn to hold their thumbs out and wiggle them up or down to express how they are and how their week has been. Allow everyone to share why. Perhaps share what God has been doing in your life this week. Why not take a moment to pray about what comes up?
Treasure hunt – have something you can use as a reward (e.g. a packet of sweets). Send everyone out of the room and then hide the sweets in different places around the room. Bring everyone back in and they have to find their reward [point: our reward is in secret where our Heavenly Father is]
Grab a tasty snack and drink and join Sian-Lee on today's video as we look at our story; Matthew 6:2-6
Family Discussion questions:
What’s the best prize or award you’ve ever received, what did it feel like?
Why do you think Jesus teaches us not to draw attention to ourselves when we do good?
How does it make you feel that you can be yourself with God, you don’t have to put a performance on?
Find a space with your cushion somewhere, bring your journal or paper and pen with you.
Play this worship music video and spend some time in secret with God? Tell him about something good you’ve done that no-one else knows about. Let Him tell you how proud of you He is and give you a big clap. God loves it when you do what is right, His Way, even when no-one else sees it.
Secret Angels – do something good for someone else this week but don’t let anyone find you doing it – it could be a gift or a nice note, or a packet of sweets – leave a note saying “from your secret angel J”
