One of our main goals as a ministry to kids is to support parents as the primary disciplers of their children. In our weekend Grace Kids classes the truth of God's Word is talked about in age appropriate ways. These questions are designed to help you extend the weekend lesson from church and engage in conversation with your kids. If you have questions or suggestions, please let us know. kids@gracebaptist.org


 

Dinner Discussions- January 4/5

Bible Passages: Obadiah

Abstract: Last weekend we looked at the message of Obadiah. Remember way back when we talked about Jacob and Esau? Many years later these two individuals will produce two nations, Israel and Edom. The effect of Jacob stealing Esau's blessing continued throughout their generations. After many years later their rivalry became most evident. We saw the Babylonians capture the Southern Kingdom of Judah and guess who watched and were happy about it? Edom. God sends them a message through the prophet Obadiah, condemning them for their unwillingness to help Israel and by stealing from them when they were taken over. Though God is bringing judgment upon them, this isn't the main point! It is a promise to restore Israel to their land. Furthermore, it is a promise that God will rule all nations as their King!

Dinner Discussions:

  1. 3 year Old's- 6th Grade
    1.  What happened to Jacob and Esau that would cause Edom to hate Israel so much?
    2. What were Edom's consequences for their sins against Israel?
    3. Do all sins have consequences? What could some of those be?
    4. Edom faces judgment because they mistreated Israel. How are we to treat our neighbors and loved ones?
    5. How can we put faith in God during mistreatment and unfairness? Do you think God can fix our broken world?
