Day 7 of the Matthew Bible Lego Challenge! Today we sit a the feet of Jesus and listen to His words. I love to read the beatitudes to my children! Take some time to talk about a few of the verses and what they mean for your family today. How can you live them out together as you go through your week?
To get a visual of what it might have looked like when Jesus spoke the beatitudes to the crowds, you can look at these examples of possible locations form BiblePlaces.com. They are so beautiful!
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 7th day of the challenge, we read Matthew 5 and Jesus delivering the sermon on the mount. The build challenge is to show Jesus teaching the crowds on the mountainside. Given the pictures in the site I linked above, you can assure your kids that a steep mountain is not required.
My son built up a hill and covered it with green bricks, and then arranged several of his figures to be facing Jesus as he spoke to them. So nice of them to leave their weapons aside in the corner, right? 😉 If you don’t have enough figures, you could try army men, other figurines, or even make some paper dolls.
The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 5:3: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” 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!
