"Pay it Forward"
Deuteronomy 6: 20 - 21, 8: 12 - 14, 17 - 18

The next generation
20 In the future, your children will ask you, “What is the meaning of the laws, the regulations, and the case laws that the Lord our God commanded you?” 21 Tell them: We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt. But the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

12 When you eat, get full, build nice houses, and settle down, 13 and when your herds and your flocks are growing large, your silver and gold are multiplying, and everything you have is thriving, 14 don’t become arrogant, forgetting the Lord your God: the one who rescued you from Egypt, from the house of slavery;

17 Don’t think to yourself, My own strength and abilities have produced all this prosperity for me. 18 Remember the Lord your God! He’s the one who gives you the strength to be prosperous in order to establish the covenant he made with your ancestors—and that’s how things stand right now.

Children's Moment
Parents, read over the lesson below and use it to stir conversation as a family!
Can you think of a time when someone did something really really nice for you?
How did it make you feel? How did you respond?
When someone does something really nice for me, I initially respond with a lot of thanks! But, the appreciation goes one step further and usually inspires me to share the story of of this kind deed with others... and then even further to me wanting to, "Pay it Forward" and do something really nice for someone else!

Our scripture today reminds us that God has blessed us with all that we have and that we should give thanks to Him and not our ourselves! It also tells us that we should take those blessings and "Pay it Forward" by sharing them with others, giving credit to God!

What gifts has God given to you? Thank God for those gifts and then spend some time thinking of ways you can share those gifts with others!

Dear God, thank you for all that you have done for me! Help me to share and do the same for others! Amen.
