Abraham Lessons

We've been studying the life of Abraham in Community Bible Study this year. My 2nd grader is in a home school class while I attend the adult class. They have a spiral notebook similar to the adults where they complete their lessons and participate each week. We spent a lot of time this fall talking about how Abraham waited for 25 years to have his son Isaac. We talked about how God was at work in Abraham while He was waiting for the son God promised. So, with that filed in the back of Luke's mind, we had these conversations.

Luke: Do you think Grammy and Poppy will have to wait 25 years for God to answer their prayers? Will it be 25 years before they move to Virginia?

Luke: Grammy and Poppy are finally going to be closer.
Me: Yes
Luke: I bet while they were waiting, God was changing them.

I love to see the little wheels turning in his head applying what he is learning!

  1. This made me think of a really funny story-When I was student teaching, my K class was learning about Abraham Lincoln. When I asked who was on the front of the penny, this sweet little boy who rarely participated shot up his hand to be called on. When I did, he shouted "Abraham Lincoln Log!" SO cute!!!!
