These scripture based activities contain a passage from the Bible for families to read and explore together. However, don’t feel limited by what’s here! There are so many other passages you could use, including choosing from the readings of the day or the readings from the Sunday mass.
One way of exploring scripture as a family is reading the passage together before a meal and then discussing it while eating.
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
Three things for us to do. The first two are about how we act towards others: fairly and compassionately. The third is about our relationship with God, walking alongside him. It brings to mind the quote from St Francis de Sales:
“Be like little children who with one hand hold fast to their father while with the other they gather strawberries or blackberries from the hedges”.
