SCRIPTURES FOR YOU TO USE FOR HANUKKAH, THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

I have prepared Scriptures for us to read at our Family Devotions each day during this week of the Festival of Lights. I will post them here for you too in case you would also like to use them. Because this celebration remembers the rededication of the temple and the relighting of the menorah, the Scriptures are about God who is the light and how He also wants us to be His light in this world.

Feel free to use the Scriptures in the way that best fits your family. You may like to take half of them at Family Devotions in the morning and the other half in the evening. If you have older children, it's a lovely idea for each one to have their own Bible and give a Scripture for each one to read aloud--and to share what they feel God is saying through the Scripture. If you have little ones, you may only want to take one Scripture from the list.

And don't forget to ask your children questions as you read the Scriptures. This is how you learn and receive enlightenment from the Scriptures together.
