Family Devotions, 1st - 4th Grade - Go against the flow - stand for God

See which family members can bend down and touch their toes without bending their knees. Now see who can do it when they start with their heels backed against a wall. It will be hard to stand and accomplish this without falling over. God wants us to stand for him when many other forces would try to push us over.
Let family members talk about a time when they might have made a stand for God and others made fun of them or tried to push them over from making such a stand. God has given us the power of Jesus in our lives. Because he paid for our sin on the cross, we can go against the flow and stand for God.

Read the Bible event of Noah taking a stand for God in Genesis chapters 6-9 from a Bible Story Book.

2 Peter 2:5b: “Noah was his messenger who told people about the kind of life that has God’s approval.”


  • Why did God want to destroy all people on earth? (The world was corrupt because the people lived evil lives.)
  • 4Why did God spare Noah and his family? (Noah had God’s approval. He walked with God.)
  • 4What did God tell Noah? (God told Noah to build a ship and fill it with two of every kind of animal.)
  • What do you think the people might have said to tease Noah or make fun of him for following God?
  • What are some wrong things Satan might tell you by watching messages on television? What about in movies? What about in music?
  • Are there heroes who aren’t good examples?
  • Have you ever had a friend tempt you or try to push you away from God without realizing it?

Pray for special protection and the ability to go against the flow and take a stand for God.

Family Time Option
One day this week, try…
FAMILY TIME OPTIONS: Mark a TV Guide with programs that might show sinful actions in a positive light. Make a family plan for what TV programs you will watch. Plan to not watch any that would fill you with messages of how sin is glamorous. Go against the flow—stand for God.
