Grace of July

Key Verse: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1)

Our hope is for our kids to believe that: God protects us

(Open the bible and read to your child Exodus 1:1 – 2:10) About 400 years had passed since Joseph was second in command in all of Egypt. The Hebrews were so numerous that the ruler of Egypt (Pharaoh) felt threatened by them.  Because of his fear the ruler of Egypt ordered all Hebrew male babies to be killed. However, Moses was protected by God during this time. The mother of Moses set him in a basket to float down the Nile right when Pharaoh’s daughter was there. This allowed Moses to be saved from death, and God gave Moses both a God-honoring upbringing and a king’s-class education in Pharaoh’s court.  God was preparing Moses to lead his people out of Egypt.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Discuss times when your family has felt God’s protection or ways God has used your family to provide protection for others(for example, a car breaking down on a trip far from home). Then read Psalm 46:1 and Romans 8:38-39 and talk about what these verses mean to you in regard to God’s protection.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Take your family on an adventure outside to look for ways God protects things in nature. Look for things like bird nests that protect eggs or cocoons that protect butterflies. You can also spot things like doghouses that protect animals from the rain. Keep a list of things you find, or have your parents write them down, and then talk about the things you found and the ways they protect. Then talk about ways you and your family are protected.
