This lesson explores a somewhat challenging story but covers an important life truth in the process. The slaughter of children ordered by Herod was an awful episode in the history of Israel, but God rescued Jesus and His family, sending an angel to give Joseph special instructions. Use a blindfolded volunteer and specific directions to illustrate the trust required in following God’s commands. The focus of this lesson is on trusting God, even during scary circumstances. We don’t always understand what is happening, but we can listen to our Heavenly Father and know that He is with us and wants what’s best for us.

The Lord promises to be with us and take care of us, no matter what else is happening in our lives. He sent an angel to warn Joseph that the family needed to leave for Egypt, which kept Jesus safe until Herod was no longer a threat to the Christ child. He will always be with us and keep us safe, too. Life can be scary and uncertain at times, but we can always count on Him for safety, love, and protection.

            I used only a tiny bit of the information provided but that was because I ran out of presentation time. I especially liked that I could choose which version of the Bible I wanted to use. In my church we only use the King James Version.
