Year 1, Fall: Lesson 8
What we learned today
Big Idea: God cares for me (Part 2)
Exodus 16; Numbers 11v7–9. After leaving Egypt, the Israelites had a long road ahead of them. The people started complaining early in the journey. God heard their grumbling and told Moses He would send food from heaven. He also gave special instructions about taking only enough food for each day. When the people woke up the ground was covered in manna. God cares for His people.
Where we're headed next time
Big Idea: God is worshipped.
Worshipping through Psalms. Psalm 27v6; 30v11; 95v2; 98v4; 108v1; 149v3. The God of all creation is holy and worthy of all worship. We were created to worship Him. Scripture tells us that if God’s people do not praise Him for who He is, the rocks will cry out in praise of Him.

Share these facts to get the conversation started:
All of creation was made to worship God.
Worship is not just singing songs to God—it is an attitude of awe, thankfulness, service, and praise that can be part of our lives every day. (Luke 19v37–40)
Connect as a family
Read Psalm 95v1–6. Remind your child that God is worthy of our worship because He is above all.
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these thoughts together:
Explain to your children that you can worship God in everything you do. Dancing, giving, art, singing, silence, sharing, and thanksgiving are just some of the ways we can worship Him.
Share with your child the ways in which you worship God. Talk together about why we worship Him.
Your child learns by mimicking your actions. Allow her to imitate your posture as she watches you praise God for who He is in the everyday rhythm of your life.
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
Open a Bible and read Psalm 95v6: Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), may you always remember that you were made to worship God.
