2 Timothy 1:7
Fan the Flame Activity
Look up this verse in the Bible. It talks about fear directly. Read it in context and have a discussion with your children. Then have them write theirs and your own fears down on one piece of paper (fold it like a fan).
- Light a candle and talk about how the flame represents us. Fan the flame with the paper and talk about how fear often makes us wobbly and nervous inside like the flame when we fan it.
- Write on the back of the paper a prayer about the fears and asking God to bring peace. Talk about how when we pray, we can receive peace because we know God is with us even in the midst of the fears. And that even though we may be afraid, we should look to the HOPE that is in Christ Jesus and his great love!
- Here are some Scriptures to help in looking to the Hope God provides:
- Romans 5:1-5
- Romans 15:13
- Romans 8:24-25
- Psalm 91
- Psalm 121
