On the Go Family Devotional: At the Beach

On the Go Family Devotional: At the Beach


Looking for a way to teach your kids about God during the busy summer?  Here’s an idea for the beach.

The Beach: Another display of God’s handiwork.  Build a sandcastle near the tide, on the sand.  Build another one on a rock on higher land.  Discuss the wise man and the foolish man.  How does that apply to us?  Sing “The Wise Man Built his House upon the Rock.”

Fill a small container with sand.  How many granules would you estimate are in there?  Talk about Psalm 139:17-18, “How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.”

Go on a hunt for seashells.  Challenge them to find two that are exactly the same.

Find a recipe for a “sand dirt dessert” and make it when you get home.
