Read Exodus 13:18 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What was the worst trip you've ever taken?
Parent Note: After something so horrible, going home has never seemed so wonderful. The Israelites were finally free. They were finally on their way to the home God had promised their ancestors hundreds of years earlier. There was much to celebrate as they traveled through the desert.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for saving the Israelites.
I know that You keep every promise.
Please help me to trust and celebrate Your plan.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
