Hey Bobby, Sarah, Clint, Rachel, and Amber
As you teach through this story, think on your own wayward heart. Try to relate to the Israelites so you can help your kids identify with them. And in identifying with the Israelites as those who turn away from God in rebellion, they will be able to see the great mercy and grace of God to forgive.
Take some time this week to look over the lesson and activities. Figure out what the story means and how it applies to your own life. Then begin to think about how it applies to the kids in your class.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Thank you for your service to our church family. I pray it would give you great joy in the Lord as you teach them about him.
