Jesse Tree: Day 7

December 5

Scripture:  Genesis 22:1-14

Reading:  Isaac was a special boy, and his father, Abraham, loved him very much. But Abraham loved God even more than he loved Isaac. One day God asked Abraham to take Isaac on a journey. Abraham obeyed. God also asked Abraham to kill Isaac as a sacrifice, as a way of showing how much Abraham loved God.

Abraham was sad, but he knew that he had to obey God. He trusted that even though he was being asked to do something terrible, God would make everything right. As he was getting ready to sacrifice Isaac, God sent an angel to stop Abraham and save Isaac’s life. Then Abraham sacrificed a sheep as a way of honoring God, and to thank him for saving Isaac’s life.

Talk About:  When did you feel protected by God?

Prayer:  Protect us, dear God, when we have to do things that make us sad.
