Talk about what your kids want to be when they grow up.God sent Moses to fulfill His plan, to give the Israelites dreams, to set them free! Moses had to accomplish a lot to make this happen. Discuss what it might take to accomplish your child’s dream(s) (school, training, etc.). Talk about how God can help with those things to accomplish those dreams and how He might use them for His glory.
The mighty power of God. Throughout this passage you see God work in many great ways. He used the plagues to get Pharaoh’s attention. He showed His might to the Egyptians, who believed their gods were powerful. God used Moses to show them He was more powerful! Talk about a hard time you’ve experienced. Did you feel like it was never going to end? How did God show His power in your life?
It took a lot for the Israelites to believe God was all-powerful. They had their doubts, even up to the water’s edge. Talk about how God is there even when we forget He’s there. Talk about how it makes you feel when you feel the love of God.
The Passover meal is a fun one to represent and do in your home. The Israelites had to clean their home a special way and eat a special way. They ate in a way so they could leave in a moment. We celebrate now in a way to remember God’s deliverance. Talk about ways you use to remember God delivering you from a tough time or when you first believed.
