David & Bathsheba as told by a 9yo

Well this weeks Super Family Bible Night was certainly interesting, to say the least. Toby chose the story of David & Bathsheba, I think because he liked the war pictures in his Bible when Uriah & Joab were on the battle field. Little did he know the bigger context of the passage... Made for interesting discussion.

Thankfully we'd had some discussion on adultery last week, so we are to use last weeks chat and this weeks passage together. Obviously we spoke about it in an age appropriate way.

After we'd read the story, we came to practical illustration time and can I say truthfully .... I was unsure what Toby was going to have us draw. Thankfully his focus was about drawing what we thought God's temple would look like or draw David's crown.

Tonight was certainly challenging but again fun, and about releasing our kids to engage God's word in their own way.

Why not have a go with family nights with your family this week.

Moses & the drawing tablets

Well its been awhile since I've uploaded a 'Super Family Bible Night' we've been still enjoying our family nights just slack in uploading. So with a new phone and a blogging app there's really little excuse. Enjoy our family antics.

Tonight's theme was the 10 commandments. Adam's plan was to read to ask the kids which ones they remembered, they did remember 3 but got fixated on one in particular 'do not kill'.

Adam read through the rest of the 10 commandments, and was doing really well with his explanations until... 'do not commit adultery' ... How do you explain that to a 6yo & 9yo...

Each of us drew a picture of one them, Adam drew resting on the sabbath, Kylie drew coveting someone else's stuff, Toby drew someone stealing his new toys but the most interesting was lily's she decided to draw do not murder. Mmm...

Great fun, easy night. Why not explore Family Nights with your family.
