As you TALK IT UP this week, keep track of ideas your family has for ways to ACT OUT Jesus’ words in Matthew 5:16. And TALK IT UPWARDS too! Pray together and ask God to transform your hearts so your GOOD DEEDS SHINE in such a way that others are inspired to PRAISE Him.

Here are 5 quick questions to help you launch fun family talks about Matthew 5:16!

DAY 1

What’s GOOD about your life right now? How much of that is because of something God has done for you?

DAY 2

What’s a DEED (an action) you can’t do now—but you look forward to doing it?

DAY 3

When it comes to SHINING God’s love into the world, do you think you glow at 10 watts? 25 watts? 50 watts? 100 watts? Or are you spotlight-bright?

DAY 4

Pause to look up, down, and all-around—SEE how everyone in your family is feeling. How can you help someone who’s hurting? How would that GOOD DEED bring PRAISE to God?

DAY 5

PRAISE honors and celebrates what is GOOD. Who can you PRAISE today for doing a GOOD job?

Do a deep dive into the keywords from Matthew 5:16 with these definitions and quick questions!

Keep track of your family’s suggestions for ways to bring PRAISE to God by doing GOOD DEEDS. As a family, pick 1—or more!—of those ideas and ACT IT OUT. Remember to ask God for help to do GOOD DEEDS—and make sure He gets the PRAISE!

These questions will help your family connect the keywords back to Matthew 5:16. Answer all the questions or pick just 1 or 2—whatever works for your family!

  • What’s something GOOD a person has done for you recently? How could you thank that person—and PRAISE God?

  • Tell about a time when God’s love was SHINING brightly into the world through you.
  • What’s something you’d like to SEE God do in the world?
  • Based on what we’ve discovered in Matthew 5:16, how might you change the way you do GOOD DEEDS for our family and others?

Tell someone what your family did to put Matthew 5:16 into action. If you use social media, include a photo or video clip of your DEEDS. Use the hashtag #righthererightnow and inspire others to SHINE too!
