Jesse Tree: Day 5

December 3

Scripture:  Genesis 12:1-7

Reading:  Sometimes God asks us to do things that are hard to do. God asks us to be good when it would be so much easier–and sometimes more fun–to be naughty. God asks us to go places and do things we’d rather not do.

God asked Abram to take a long trip, and to leave behind the place that Abram called home. But in return, God made promises to Abram. God promised that Abram would be blessed by God. Abram still had problems and struggles, especially when he forgot to listen to God’s directions, but God kept all of the promises made to Abram. Most importantly, God was Abram’s friend forever.

Talk About:  Name some ways that God shows you what God wants you to do.

Prayer:  Holy God, help us to obey you and do the things that you want us to do.
