Explain to your family that they are trying to guess a secret object. You will give them a hint such as “This is a person, place, or thing.” Let each person one at a time choose a number between 1 and 20 and whatever number is chosen, read that number clue. After hearing the clue, the person will try to guess the answer. See who will be the first person to discover the hidden object. For fun, you can also have your family create more turns by choosing and developing their own “20 Questions” which you can play following your family devotion.
Hint: I am a Thing

ASK: How does light help us? (We can’t see without light.)
ASK: What would it be like to live in a world that only had darkness?
SAY: The Bible says that the world is full of darkness. This isn’t the kind that keeps you from seeing physically but is a spiritual darkness. Anyone who doesn’t know Christ, the Bible says, is in darkness and is blinded to the things of God. This is the reason that people who have never received Christ have trouble understanding the things of God.
ASK: Who is the light of the world?
SAY: The Bible says that Jesus is the light of the world. Listen to what Jesus said in John 8:12
Read John 8:12
ASK: What do you think the verse means, that Jesus is the light of the world?
SAY: Jesus brings truth into the darkness. His light is the light of life because He is the only way to have life. Light also shows the way and Jesus is the only way to have life and to go to Heaven. The Bible says that He is the way the truth and the life (John 14:6).
ASK: What are ways that the world lives in darkness? What can we do as a family to help us live in the light instead of the darkness? What are ways that our family can walk more closely with Jesus?
Take prayer requests and PRAY with and for your family.
(EXTRA: Make the word “Light” your Word of the Day and see how many times your family can use it in conversations in the next 24 hours.)
