God, tell me a story about…You
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
Today we looked at a story about the Israelites. We remembered that at one time, the Israelites (God’s people) were slaves in Egypt, until God, through Moses, set them free. But this meant leaving their homes in Egypt and going into the desert.
Read Exodus 16:2 – 35
1 – Were the Israelites happy in the desert? How do you know this?
2 – Have you ever been to a desert? What kind of food can you find in a desert?
3 – When God heard his people complaining what did He do?
4 – Do you think God would have sent the Israelites food even if they had never complained? Why?
5 – For how many years did God send food to the Israelites in the desert? (verse 35)
6- What are things that you need? Has God always provided you with those things? Do you believe that God will provide you with the things that you need in the future? Why or why not?
Read Matthew 6:25 – 33
7 – God created you. He knows what you need. He loves you and cares for you. He will provide for you. So, what does God ask from you in return?
