Sunday School lesson – God calls Abraham / Man of faith Genesis 12:1-9
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart.’ -- Proverbs 3:5
What we learned:
Abraham had faith. Faith is trust. Abraham believed God’s promises and
obeyed God. Abraham moved at God’s command with no knowledge of
where he was going.
Suggested parent/child activity:
Tell your child/children a personal “moving” story. Either from your
childhood or pre-children days or one they remember. Talk about moving
with God. To obey God is not always easy and requires trust.
For those who want to dig deeper:
The life of faith is a life of risk, of stepping out into the unknown with
nothing more solid before us than God’s command. L.O. Richards
