Look back:  Read back over Matthew 14:13-21.  Take time as a family to reflect on Jesus' trustworthiness that is rooted in his compassion and power.

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Pastor Michael will be preaching from Matthew 14:22-36.  Read over the passage with your family during the week before Sunday. 

Sing: Check out this week's music and sing with your family before Sunday.  I'm a big fan of "Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery" in particular. 

Catechize: (New City Question 14)
Did God create us unable to keep his law? 
A: No, but because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve we are all born in sin and guilt, unable to keep God’s law.
