The Exodus

Key Verse: “Love the Lord with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” – (Deuteronomy 6:5)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God helps us when we’re afraid

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Exodus 16:1-26) The Israelites had been free from the Egyptians for approximately 30 days. It was at this time that their food started to run out. This caused great concern and the Israelites began to grumble and complain. It was then that God provided food from heaven every morning that they decided to call manna. This manna (which means “what is it”) was not to be stored and saved, but to be gathered day by day. If they decided to store the manna it would spoil This taught the Israelites to trust that God will provide what they needed when they needed.

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk about a time your family faced a serious need that God provided for. Maybe it was a miraculous answer to prayer for healing or maybe God used other people around you to provide for a financial need. Then come up with ways you as a family can reach out to others in need as God leads you to.

 Activity/Challenge for Families:
Have everyone in the family work together to create a chart of things God provides for your family. Make the chart out of construction paper – maybe it could look like a big present – and hang it on your refrigerator. Throughout the week, have family members draw or write on the chart things God provides for them. At the end of the week, sing the song “Psalm 23” together to thank God for providing.
