Moses

Ever since the kids acted out the Moses finger play for letter F, we've been continuing in Unit 7 all last week by reading the various parts of Moses' story. 

We cut and colored this clip art picture of Moses in the basket. Then we went ahead and traced and cut out Z's hands. He felt strongly that we needed to literally put Moses within the "reeds" so little baby Moses is hidden from view. We used the occasion to talk about how God has plans for each of us. He even knows what tomorrow will be like before we even go to bed tonight!


We also had some fun with plain ole brown paper bags... 
L weaved pieces together and made a basket. 


Another brown paper bag project was inspired by a Pinterest find. We made a burning bush (ok, use your imagination... pink flames is a stretch, I know...) and then acted out taking off our shoes, as the audio Bible read Exodus 3 aloud: "Then He said, 'Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.'” 


There is something about walking through a Bible character's life to learn about that character, but it's even sweeter to see what you can learn about God within that story. Through Moses' baby years, I saw the power of God. I saw His power to save a baby boy in a country that mandated death for all Hebrew baby boys. Through Moses' experience with the burning bush, I saw God's majesty. Moses' sandals weren't fit to touch the ground near the bush in which God was speaking to him through.

Wow. What an amazing God we serve!
