We are starting on a new journey! We will be learning about the Ten Commandments! This will be an exciting time of learning about God’s love and protection.
Sometimes rules seem mean and unfair don’t they? You may get punished because you don’t obey your mom and dad- and you might not understand what the big deal is. Well, this has been a problem throughout time! God’s chosen people- the Hebrew children got into lots of trouble when they didn’t obey their father- God. God used a baby, who grew up to be a leader, to give the Hebrew people laws called the 10 Commandments. His name was Moses!
This Sunday we will watch a movie about the life of Moses so we can understand who this man was and how God used him. There is a part of the Moses story that talks about the Pharaoh and the order to get rid of the babies under 2- I know this can be scary for you guys- just know that God rescues Moses through his mother and a princess…almost sounds like a Disney movie doesn’t it?
Next Sunday – April 18th, we will start learning the 10 Commandments. We will sing a great song with Miss Lori that will help us learn the commandments and we will sing that in the big church service after we have learned it!
God gives us these commandments because He loves us. He doesn’t want us to have to guess what we are supposed to do or how we are supposed to live. He wants us to be full of peace and joy- and know how we are to act and behave. Isn’t that great? We do not need to try and figure it all out! What a loving God! Just like our parents set rules and consequences here on earth…our Heavenly Father does the same.
I’m excited to start this journey with you guys!!!
See you Sunday!
Remember- Jesus loves you and so do I!
