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.
