The Walls Of Jericho
Hey parents! Use these questions as a guide to talk over this week’s lesson, The Walls of Jericho, with your child after they’ve watched the video service!
- What was your favorite part of the video we just watched? Do you have any questions about what you saw?
- What instructions did God give Joshua?
He told Joshua to gather his soldiers and march around the city of Jericho for six days. Seven priests were in front – their job was to blow the horns. On the seventh day, they were to march around the city seven times, blowing horns and giving a great shout.
- Did that seem strange?
That must have sounded strange that a big wall would fall just because of some horns, shouts, and marching. But it happened because of God’s power!
- What should you do when God gives you instructions?
Listen and obey like Joshua and the Israelites obeyed. It’s always the right choice to obey God.
- Take some time to pray with your child. You might pray something like this:
Dear God, thank you that you always know what’s best for me. Please help me to listen to you and obey so that I can follow your best plan. I love you! Amen.
