Memory Verse

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light

Audio Icon   1 Peter 2:9



The theme of the Chosen episode is adoption. Morrie finds out that his family chose him to become part of their family. YOU are chosen to be part of God’s family because God loves you. There is nothing you can do to earn HIS love; it is a gift! You can respond to God's choice with belief and obedience and by declaring HIS praises! You were chosen to be God’s very own child.

Christians know that God has chosen them to be his children. Dig deeper and read more in scripture: Romans 8:15; Galatians 3:26-28, 4:5; Ephesians 1:5.


  1. Find ways to encourage others in your Christian family. Encouraging others with a ‘thank you’ or recognizing a talent or gift is a wonderful way to make others feel excited about being chosen by God! It is a way to make others feel like valuable members of the family.
  2. Brainstorm some Random Acts of Kindness (RAKE): things you do for others, not because they earned it, but just because you chose them. As a family, do a RAKE for someone in your neighborhood and watch their reaction when they are chosen! You can do things like pay for someone’s coffee behind you in the drivethrough, give a roll of mints to a someone at church, or tape some change to the parking meter for the next customer.
