Read Numbers 22:27-28 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Why do dogs walk around in circles before they lie down?
Parent Note: Animals do strange things sometimes. Balaam didn’t understand why his donkey refused to move any further, but instead of just never figuring it out and possibly continuing on his journey by foot, God allowed the donkey to explain herself. Learning why dogs and cats or other animals do the strange things they do would be interesting, but that knowledge likely wouldn’t have life or death consequences like it did for Balaam.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord, thank You for doing the impossible for me.
Help me to listen and obey when You speak to me.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen
