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.
