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.

Dinner Discussions February 1/2

Bible Passage: Esther

Abstract: The past few weeks we have been learning about Israel's return from exile after the Babylonian captivity. However, not all of God's people returned to the land! Some of them decided to stay in Persia. Last weekend we learned about a woman named Esther who stayed in the Persian empire eventually becoming Queen! After a turn of events, a man named Haman became very powerful in the Empire, so  powerful that the King demanded everyone to bow down to him. However, one person, Esther's uncle Mordecai would not bow to him causing Haman to plan for a way to kill all of the Jews in the empire. Upon finding this out, Esther approaches the King and mediates on behalf of her people to save them from Haman's wrath. What is amazing about this book is that God is never mentioned explicitly in it, yet we can see His work through it all! God was with the Jews even though they stayed in a foreign land. Be encouraged knowing that God is always with His people, empowering us to resist temptation and persevere in the faith.
