Precious in His Sight: A Family Devotional about Racial Issues
Use this set of 6 family devotions to equip parents to have conversations with their kids about racial issues from a biblical perspective. This devotional resource is based on six biblical truths that inform our views on race, equality, and justice. Each devotional includes Scripture, discussion questions, and an easy object lesson families can do from home using supplies they probably already have around the house. See a preview of the first devotional below.
Encourage families to go through these devotions over the span of 6 weeks (one devotion a week) or over a week (one devotion a day), or on another timeline of your choosing. The included parent email template and social media graphics can help you communicate with and remind parents of this resource.
This devotional covers these truths over 6 different sessions:
- We are all made in the image of God. (See a preview of this truth’s devotional below.)
- God loves all people.
- We should love others the way God loves.
