Read Luke 1:67-80 together. John the Baptist grew up to praise the Lord and show others how to follow Jesus. But did you know that John’s father (Zechariah) prophesied about his son before he was born? He heard from God…and shared what God told him!
Prophecy is a big word, but in I Corinthians 14:3, the Bible tells us it just means strengthening, encouraging and comforting. We can prophesy by sharing a Bible verse with a family member or reminding a worried friend that God is always with him or her. Try it out: Share one truth about God with the whole family. Then ask: Does anybody feel stronger? More hopeful? Comforted? Talk about it together.
