Day 8 of the Matthew Bible Lego Challenge! The passage on the Lord’s Prayer obviously includes the model prayer that Jesus provided us to guide us in our prayer life. This is a wonderful side study to do with your kids as you complete this challenge. Jesus also teaches about what to do (pray in secret) and what NOT to do (pray like the hypocrite, drawing attention to ourselves).
If you haven’t downloaded the printable yet, you want to do that right away! You can do the challenge on your own (there are 34 days total with copywork and notebooking pages) or you can use it to follow along with us here and share your creations with us on the Proverbial Homemaker Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram!
For the 8th day of the challenge, we read Matthew 6 and Jesus’ instruction on prayer. The build challenge is to build the scene of the hypocrite, the person praying in secret, or some kind of bread (for “daily bread”).
My oldest asked for more explanation on the hypocrite described in the story. We talked about what it means to be a hypocrite and why this man was being hypocritical. We also talked about a better way to approach prayer. My son decided to build the scene of the hypocrite praying and calling attention to himself by having people blow trumpets to get attention.
The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 6:9, turning our prayers to look upon God rather than upon ourselves. The printable includes a drawing and writing page for those who would rather draw the scene.
We are going through 21 (out of 34) of the buils from the Matthew Lego Challenge together, following a FREE kids’ devotion on the YouVersion app (or the desktop version, Bible.com). The devotion is called Walk With Jesus: 21 Days Through Matthew and it is from What’s in the Bible?, one of our favorite family discipleship tools! Don’t forget to enter to win the What’s in the Bible DVD that goes along with the book of Matthew!
