Lesson Learned: Nothing is too hard for God.

Materials Needed: pictures of family members

Bible Verse:
Genesis 18:10-14

10 Then one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”
   Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. 11 Abraham and Sarah were already very old, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. 12 So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?”
 13 Then the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”

Genesis 21:1-3
1 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac[a] to the son Sarah bore him.

Talking Points:  Sometime after the flood where Noah and his family were saved on the Ark, a man named Abraham was born. Abraham loved God and God loved him.  Abraham got married to a woman named Sarah but Sarah was unable to have children.  Abraham and Sarah were getting old when 3 visitors came to them promising them that God would give them a son.  Abraham and Sarah thought this was impossible because they were so old, but the visitors reminded them that nothing is too hard for the Lord! He can do anything!

Questions:  How old are you? How old were your mom and dad when you were born? Do you know how old your grandparents are?  Abraham was probably even older than your grandparents when they had their very first child!

Activity:  Gather some family pictures of your family members, identifying the oldest member.  Then, practice counting as high as your child can.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we know that You can do anything! Nothing is too hard for You!  We ask that You help us always believe and remember that and let You use us to help You achieve Your will. Amen!
