Jesus Teaches about Trust

Matthew 6

Family Discussion Questions

  • Who can trust God?
  • What is the definition of trust? Is there a difference between trusting a person and trusting God?
  • When can we trust God to be there? How do you know?
  • Where in our lives does trust effect how we act?
  • Why do you think that Jesus specifically tells us not to be anxious? How does that tie into trust?
  • How does the model prayer encourage us to trust God?
  • Which part of your life is the hardest to trust God about? Your family? School? Job? . . .
  • Choose one member of your family to pray for this week. Ask God to help them trust Him in all things.

Song – I grew up singing the hymn “Trust and Obey” the final part of the song says

And ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

Maybe you could sing or listen to this song as a family this week.
