Quarter 1 • Episode 8
Deuteronomy 6:5

This week your family will GET INTO Deuteronomy 6:5. Together you’ll explore how to LOVE God with ALL your HEART, SOUL, and STRENGTH. And you’ll have fun doing it!

So, gather your family, start streaming the video, and … GET INTO IT.

After the video, remind your family that this week you’ll TALK IT UP and ACT IT OUT together. You’ll ask God to help you LOVE Him with all you are: with ALL your HEART, SOUL, and STRENGTH.

Sing along with SARAH KROGER and worship God will ALL your HEART, SOUL, and STRENGTH! Keep worshiping all throughout the week–you can download the lyrics to both songs HERE.

As you TALK IT UP this week, keep track of the ideas your family has for how to LOVE God in fresh ways. And TALK IT UPWARDS too by praying together. Ask God to plant a desire in your HEART, mind, and SOUL to grow in your relationship with Him.

Here are 5 quick questions to help you launch fun family talks about Deuteronomy 6:5!

DAY 1

It’s hard to LOVE someone you don’t really know. In what ways can you get to know God better? What would help that happen?

DAY 2

You LOVE lots of people. If you LOVE God with ALL your HEART, do you think that means you have to LOVE others less? What’s that “ALL” really mean when it comes to LOVING God?

DAY 3

Your HEART holds your deepest beliefs and values … but those can change. What’s something you believe or LOVE that you don’t think will ever change?

DAY 4

If you were asked to draw a picture of your SOUL, what would you draw? Describe it (or go ahead and draw it!).

DAY 5

What’s a STRENGTH of yours—something you can do really well? What’s a STRENGTH you have that nobody would know just by looking at you?

This week TALK UP the keywords from Deuteronomy 6:5. But keep it simple—just pick one word per day!

Keep track of your family’s suggestions for ways to LOVE God more deeply, or in new ways. As a family, pick 1—or more!—of those suggestions and ACT IT OUT.

These questions will help your family connect keywords back to Deuteronomy 6:5. Answer all the questions or pick just 1 or 2—whatever works best for your family!

  • What might change for the better in your life if you LOVED God even more than you LOVE Him now?
  • What are ways you show LOVE to people? How might you do some of those same things to show God your LOVE for Him?
  • If you could have ALL of something, what would you want? Why did you pick that thing? Why do you think God wants you to LOVE Him with ALL your HEART?
  • If your HEART is where your deepest feelings and beliefs are, how did they get in there? How do you come to believe what you believe and feel the way you feel?
  • Your SOUL is the very center of what makes you, you! How well do you think God knows the real you? Why do you answer as you do?
  • STRENGTH increases when it’s exercised. How might spending more time with God give you the STRENGTH you need to LOVE God even more than you LOVE Him now?
