GOD REDEEMS
Part of The Big God Story
Genesis 13

JUST FOR FUN


Read this part of The Big God Story outside, preferably in a park or garden. Take
some time to look around at Gods creationtrees, clouds, birds, flowers,
insects, and more. Then read Genesis 13.

1.1

DID YOU KNOW?


Genesis, which means origin, explains how God created everything in the
universe.
1
God gave the first humans the full responsibility over the earth and
animals.
2
Adam and Eve gave up the right to live in perfect harmony with God
when they chose to sin.
3
After Adam and Eve sinned, God immediately showed them His perfect
love by promising to send the Redeemer.
4

REMEMBER VERSE
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful
God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who
love him and keep his commandments. Deuteronomy 7:9

TEACHABLE MOMENTS

Your child is growing more skilled at creating her own art. As you read the
creation story with your child, allow her to use crayons, markers, or paints to
recreate some of what she hears.

After reading Scripture, discuss the following together:


If you could have been there on any of the days of creation, which day would
you choose? Why?
Talk together about how God covered Adam and Eve when they sinned.
Discuss how God, in His perfect love for us, covered our sin by sending His Son
as our Redeemer.

OLDER KIDS

BLESSING

YOUNGER KIDS

Your child is developing his own thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics.
Take him to a local park or natural setting and talk about creation. Invite your
child to share his thoughts on our responsibility to care for the world around us.

For more information about blessing your child see the Blessing section in
HomeFront: A Spiritual Parenting Resource.
A blessing to pray over your child:
(Childs name), the LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who
saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke
you, but will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).
