Fear Not: Family Home Evening Idea

(Sorry the picture's a little blurry! Having too much fun to pose for the camera!)

Scripture: Isaiah 41:10, 13 "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee."

Song: 2nd Verse of How Firm a Foundation
Activity: Role play the 3 Billy Goats Gruff. Video tape your performance!
What are things we are afraid of? Should we be afraid though?
Point: Just like the Big Billy Goat's brother saved his family, so will our elder brother Jesus Christ save us! We never have to be afraid because He is with us.
Additional Scriptures:
* Psalms 34:4 "I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."
* Luke 12:32 "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom."
* Deut. 31:6 "Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."
* 1 John 4:18 "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear..."
