Read Exodus 13:21 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: How do you find your way through a museum?
Parent Note: There are a lot of things to see in a museum. Having to read all of the information next to each piece of art to understand what we're looking at and figuring out which rooms hold the exhibits we're interested can take a lot of time. God was acting as the Israelites tour guide as they escaped Egypt. Leading a huge group of people through a foreign land, a desert no less, is a massive undertaking. To ensure that no one got lost, God led the people in a very obvious way that everyone could see: a cloud by day and a column of fire by night.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for leading Your people in the way that is right.
I know that Your way is the best.
Please help me follow You no matter what.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
