Read Isaiah 64:6.
-What has sin done to your best good deeds?
Read Romans 3:21-28
-Clap each time you hear the word right.
-Why can’t we brag about our good deeds?
-How can we be made right with God?

Family Activities 

-Play this game in a darkened room, with only a small flashlight for light.
-Set up a circle of chairs—all facing out.
-Place one less chair in the circle than you have kids playing the game.
-Tell kids that they’ll play Musical Chairs with a twist.
-Unlike regular Musical Chairs, this version is played in the dark.
-Have everyone lie on the floor.
-Explain that an earthquake has just occurred and it knocked everyone to the floor.
-Tell kids that the earthquake’s intensity caused part of the building to cave in, injuring every person in the room.
-Assign everyone an injury. For example, all boys wearing red can’t use their legs, all girls wearing blue can’t use their arms, and everyone with tennis shoes can’t see.
-The building will collapse in five minutes, and they need to get everyone out of the room. E
-Encourage everyone to work together to accomplish this.
