When you have to wait, remember what’s true
In week two, we head to Exodus 32:1-35. Moses met with God on Mount Sinai. He left his brother, Aaron, and the rest of the Israelites to wait. Rather than waiting patiently for Moses to return, the entire nation of Israel rebelled. They built a golden calf and began to worship it instead of worshiping God. And because of their lack of patience, God judged an entire nation. If only they had remembered how God rescued them from Egypt and trusted him while they waited.
When you have to wait, remember what’s true. We can’t avoid having to wait, but we can choose how we respond. A good way to discover patience is to think about what’s true about God: God loves us and knows what’s the best for us. God cares for us and is with us. We can trust God no matter. We pray that kids remember what’s true about God when they have to wait.
