Walking in the light

Physical activity

Go for a walk on a dark light, or spend time in a dark room.

Discussion point: God wants us to “walk in the light” by showing love to others.

This activity is based on 1 John 2:9-11. Go for a walk on a dark night or allow your children to walk with you in a dark room. Ask if they are walking in the light or in the dark. If they say they are walking in the light, ask if they are trying to fool you.

Read 1 John 2:9-11. Explain that anyone who says they love God, but doesn’t love their brother is fooling himself or lying, just like the person who walks in the dark and says he is in the light.

Also, read 1 John 1:5-7. Finish by praying together, asking God to remove any darkness and sin and to fill your hearts and home with His love and light.

Relevant Scripture

1 John 2:9-11 “Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness; he does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded him.”

1 John 1:5-7 “This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.”
