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 believe that: We honor God by loving Him

(Open the bible and read to your child Exodus 19:16 – 20:21) The Israelites journeyed to Mount Sinai where God had descended. They knew God was there because there was thunder, lightning and the sound of a large trumpet. The people were in awe over the awesomeness of God who was at the top of the mountain. Moses and Aaron were the representatives for the people, so they walked to the top of the mountain to meet God. God told Moses and Aaron that they (all of the Israelites) were their prize possessions, his holy people. God is honored when we love Him, because he has unconditional love for us, and He is worthy of our praise.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents:Talk with your kids about what the word honor means to you. Then have each person think of one way he or she can honor God this week. Having a hard time coming up with a way to honor God? Look at what Jesus is most important. Love. Matthew 22:34-40 as a family.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
After discussing how you as a family have seen God’s power in your lives, discuss Exodus 19:16-18 and make a volcano to simulate what it may have been like at Mount Sinai. Mix 2 cups of salt, 1 cup of flour, and a 7/8 cup of water in a bowl. Take turns kneading the dough until it becomes firm and holds its shape. Place a baby food jar in the center of a paper plate. Mold the dough around the jar, leaving the top of the jar open as a crater. Put a teaspoon of baking soda in the jar. Pour 1/3 cup of vinegar in a cup and mix in food coloring (any color will do). Then pour the vinegar and food coloring mixture into the volcano. Watch as your mountain erupts with colored foam!
