August Free

Key Verse: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God can use anyone

(Open the bible and read to your child Exodus 2:11 – 3:20) We know that Moses was a Hebrew that was raised by Pharaoh’s daughter. Although he could have been considered an Egyptian, he identified with the Hebrews and considered himself Hebrew. So when he saw the Hebrew slave being beaten, he reacted in a bad way. This caused him to flee to the desert where he lived for years, hiding in Midian with a priest and his family. One day Moses noticed a bush that was on fire but wasn’t burning up. It was God trying to get the attention of Moses. God wanted Moses to free the Hebrews from Egyptian slavery, but Moses felt unqualified. However, God wanted Moses to be the one to free his people, and God said “I will be with you” to show Moses that he will always be there.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Tell about a time you felt weak and in need of God’s strength. How did God give you strength or use you despite your weakness? Encourage your kids to talk about how God has used them despite their feeling weak or unsure of themselves. Then discuss ways your family can become more trusting and reliant on God’s strength by remembering that God can use anyone no matter what.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Wait until the sun goes down and have a late night talk with your child. Cover a flashlight with red tissue paper to resemble a burning bush in the bible story. You could eat some candy corn, red hots, or some spicy candy. Talk with your child about how God used Moses and how God uses us to do His will.
