This week’s lesson comes from Genesis 13:2-18. It is the account of Abraham and Lot separating and going different ways.
The key lessons this passage teaches us, and our children are:
1. Make careful and Godly choices because they have consequences.
2. Put others first. Abraham let Lot choice first. Lot did what was best for Lot.
3. God ways are more important than how things physically look.
4. We need to be careful who we get close to.
Before reading Genesis 13:2-18 with your child, sit down with them and have a small snack. On a plate, put a selection of biscuits, some whole and some broken. (alternately you can use some fruit, some that look perfect and others that look bruised.)
Offer the plate to your child first and ask them to pick the best snack. Likely they will choose the whole or best-looking snack.
It’s now time to read Genesis 13:2-18 or to paraphrase it in a way your child understands. Below is a video from Saddleback kids to reinforce the lesson.
