Hope Kids at Home: Week of January 22-28

Question of the Week:  This week we heard the story of Joshua and the Israelites marching around the city of Jericho.  Why was it important for the Israelites to follow God and march around Jericho?

We win in following God!  Jericho was a big city and it may have seemed a little strange for the Israelites to march around it instead of going in to fight for it.  Joshua understood that they would only win in following God.  Sometimes God tells us to do things that don't make sense to us or that are different than what we would expect.  We only win in following God!

Tell your child about a time when you followed God's directions even when it didn't make sense.
