Review and Discussion
Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:
- Why did Moses run away to Midian for forty years? (He killed an Egyptian.)
- What did the voice of God say to Moses about His people? (His people were suffering.)
- God told Moses that He had chosen him to free His people. What did God say when Moses said he could not do it? (“I’ll help you.”)
Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:
Moses was scared to talk to Pharaoh. But God assured Moses that he would not be alone. God would help him. No matter how powerful Pharaoh was, God was greater, and He would use Moses to free His people. God is still greater than all of our worries and fears. And He is still with His people today.
Explore God’s Big Story
Together, discover how this specific lesson ties into God’s Big Story. Read the following aloud to your child:
God saw the suffering of His people during the time of Moses and sees our suffering today, too. Just like God sent Moses to free His people from Pharaoh, God sent Jesus to free us from the punishment for sin.
“Now go (extend arm, pointing forward)! I (point up with both hands) will be with you (hug your shoulders)
as you speak (cup hands around your mouth),
and I will instruct you (open your hands like a book)
in what to say (move index finger outward from lips).”
Exodus 4:12 (NLT)
Talk to God
How grateful I am that You are a God that sees our suffering and cares enough to help us. With You, I am never alone. Help me remember that even when I am scared or afraid, You are with me.
