Review and Discussion
Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:
- How did Abraham feel when God told him to kill Isaac as a sacrifice? (He was confused, but he still trusted God.)
- What did God provide for Abraham to sacrifice instead? (a ram)
Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:
Abraham loved his son. So he was confused when God told him to kill Isaac. But Abraham loved and trusted God completely, even in the midst of his confusion. Loving God does not mean things will always make sense and be easy. But trusting God means we can always know He will provide.

Together, discover how this specific lesson ties into God’s Big Story. Read the following aloud to your child:
God told Abraham to sacrifice his son, but He provided a ram for Abraham to kill instead. In the same way, God provided the ultimate sacrifice for all of us: His Son, Jesus.
And Abram believed the Lord (praying hands, looking up),
and the Lord counted him as righteous (stand tall with one fist on chest)
because of his faith (bring hands together in heart shape).
Genesis 15:6 (NLT)
Talk to God
Just like You provided for Abraham and spared Isaac, I know You will do the same for me when I trust You. Help me to remember this even when I am confused and scared.
