This week’s lesson looks at Isaac and Rebekah. Although for the most part, Rebekah will be our focus. The main points we want to teach this week are:
1. The importance of having relationships with the right people (good friends).
2. God honours the good that we do,
If you have wedding photos of your own or your child’s grandparent, why not use them to introduce this week’s lesson. Children will be curious to see what people used to look like, or if they even recognise the people.
Looking at wedding photos will also help them to understand what marriage is and the account of Isaac and Rebekah.
Remind your child of Abraham, Sarah and Isaac (see lesson ‘Isaac is born’). Explain that Abraham wanted the very best for his son, so he sent his servant to find the best wife for him. Someone who loved God and would follow Him.
Explain how it is important for us to have the right people close to us. People who will do good and follow God.
Another important lesson Rebekah teaches us is doing good. Rebekah did not only do what was required but when she saw the camels were thirsty, she also went to get water for them. Explain how much effort it would have been to collect so much water.
Give an example of how we can also do good.
Explain that Rebekah didn’t do
