The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, August 17. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.

God Makes a Promise to Abram

Passage: Genesis 11:27–12:9

Principle: God keeps His promises.

Praise: “Trust and Obey”

Prompt: Ask your child these questions:

  • What did Abram worship before God called him?
  • Did Abram follow the Lord?
  • What did God promise Abram?
  • What blessing did God promise Abram?

Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:

  • By turning from sin.
  • By turning from pride.
  • By being humble and obeying the Lord.
