Mother/Daughter Bible Study—Conclusion
Between the Two of You:
Adult/Adult Study (If you are an altogether adult mother-daughter team)
Discuss or email back and forth your thoughts on the following:
- Read Proverbs 31. Mark the verses between 10 and 31 that are blatantly uncharacteristic of the lives of Jezebel and Athaliah and notice how the Proverbs 31 woman is different from these two women. How was the beauty of Jezebel vain in the end?
2. Jezebel and Athaliah were definitely FIRST and CHIEF in many ways in this lifetime. Use your KJV concordance to look up the words “first/last”, “chief/servant”, “greatest/least”, “humble, humbleth/exalted” within the gospels. See if you can come up with 13 passages in which Jesus told us who it is that is truly great in the end. Make a list of five ways you can exemplify servanthood in the coming week.
3. Is the biblical concept of greatness similar to the world’s concept? How is it similar or how is it different in the field of politics, in the public school system, or in mainstream religions in America?
Adult/Teen Study (If you are a mom and teen daughter team)
- Read together the following blog post: https://thecolleyhouse.org/questions-and-answers-is-it-okay-to-want-to-look-pretty
- Discuss together each of the suggestions and see if you agree or disagree with them. Make a list of your own of things you believe can help the two of you to focus on inward beauty.
Adult/Child Study (if you are a mom and child team)
(Be sure you tell your daughter, in age-appropriate terms, the material from the last post about Athaliah.)
- Talk about the two choices that people get to make about where they will go when they get finished living here. Read Matthew 25: 31-46 from your child’s Bible. Make a plan for something you can do together that will be of service for someone this week. Try to think of something specific that falls into one of the categories of verses 35 and 36.
- Make a list of people (from the popular stories that your daughter is “all about” right now) who are pretty on the outside but not on the inside or vice versa. Examples might be the wolf that was dressed up like a grandmother in the story of “Little Red Riding Hood” or the Beast in “Beauty and the Beast.” Talk about how important it is to be pretty all the way through. and then read Proverbs 31: 30 together and discuss what it means to fear the Lord.
