In His Presence Family Connection – February 3

family-connection-square

Every afternoon, I will post something for you to share with your family in the evening.  It may be a talking point, a short video, a Scripture to read, etc. 

Today’s Post…

Read Psalm 23:4

Listen to Elizabeth Elliot giving a talk about her call to missions.  She tells about Jim Elliot and what happened to he and his friends.  It’s really neat to hear this from her perspective.  This is audio online.  It is 40 minutes long.

There are several movies that are based on this story.  You decide if one of these is right for your family to watch tonight. (I would not recommend End of the Spear; the native are not dressed appropriately)

  • Torchlighters The Jim Elliot Story (Rated G – cartoon version)

Rent on Demand – http://ondemand.torchlighters.org/

Talking Points…

  • Re-read the verse above (Psalm 23:4) which states, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
  • It doesn’t say, you won’t have trouble or bad things happen.  It says He will be with you when you do.
