Table Talk: Week of March 19, 2017

Whether or not your children were able to make it to Sunday school, you can still engage them in this week’s story.  Please read the summaries, look up the story online, in your bible, or a children’s bible, and begin the discussion.  Increasing your child’s biblical knowledge will be foundational in their faith development.  What a gift to provide a child.  Adults also reap the benefit of digging in deeper to these stories. 

God Provides

This week Sunday School focused on the reading from Exodus, learning how God always provides for us. Moses was leading his people to a new home, a journey of many miles across a desert.  This was a scary time for the people, often they were hungry and thirsty and doubted they would get there. Moses asked them to have faith that God would provide, but it was hard. God did provide for them, though. When they were thirsty, he gave them water.

We need to remember that God will provide for us also. While we may not always get everything we want, we can trust him to give us what we need.
