Talk About It!
Have fun asking question for all your family members!
Have you ever seen something unusual? Something that made you go WOW or huh? I think of things What did you eat for breakfast this morning? What are some of your favorite foods? What fruits and vegetables do you like?
In our story today, people were hungry. What do you say when you’re hungry? How does your tummy sound? Well the people in our story weren’t as cute as I’m sure you just sounded, they were grumpy and whiny. You’re never like that when you’re hungry right?? Well Moses their leader couldn’t figure out how to feed everyone, so he asked God for help. How did God help? It was in a pretty WOW way wasn’t it!
This story shows us that God always provides, he always takes care of us, and that should fill our hearts with thankfulness. How does God provide food for you? Can you thank those people for sharing God’s love by providing for you. Thanks!
Dig Deeper: Can you imagine what it would be like to walk through desert with nothing to eat? What are some words that would best describe your feelings? The Israelites had these feelings. There are refugees today who have these feelings. God provided food for the hungry people. What are some ways that you can provide food for others?
