What Do Your Children Think About Marriage?

August 13th, 2013

For dinner conversation, find out your kids’ thoughts about marriage. Ask these questions:

  • Is it better to be married or single?
  • What is the best age to get married?
  • How should you decide whom to marry?
  • How would you make a marriage work?
  • Describe the person you would like to marry.

Marriage is God’s idea. He gave Adam someone to love (Eve) and someone who could love him back. God cares about who you marry.

Going the Same Direction

Items needed: scarf or rope for each two kids

Run a three-legged race to introduce the idea of marrying believers. Pair up kids and tie one of each kid’s legs together with a scarf, except have them facing opposite directions.  When you say go, instruct them to run as fast as they can toward the designated finish line.

What happened? (We fell down; we were going opposite directions and couldn’t go anywhere, etc.)

Why was it hard to run toward the finish line? 
    
(We were going in two different directions.)

Read 2 Corinthians 6:14.

What does the Bible say about being yoked (joined) together with unbelievers? (Don’t do it.)

Run the race toward the finish line again, but this time with each pair holding hands.

It is easier to get to the finish line if you are both going the same direction. God wants a believer (one who believes in Jesus and follows Him) to marry another believer. Then they will be going in the same direction, serving God together.
