RebekahMain Points to Remember
pitcher: a large container for liquids
Prayer: Father, please help us choose our mates wisely
Lesson: Genesis 24
Activity: Play a quick game of Pictionary (click for instructions) from the objects in the lesson. For example: camel, pitcher, bracelet, well, wedding, water, daughter, Isaac, servant, Canaan.
Discussion: Why did the servant choose the sign of drawing water for camels? Only a kind, humble, polite and generous person would freely offer to draw water for ten camels as well as for their owner. The servant chose a behavior that reflected good qualities in a person. He wanted a kind, humble, polite and generous wife for Isaac. Jesus said you can tell a good tree by its fruit - and you can tell a good person by their behavior. How good is our fruit today? Would the servant have picked you?
Sing: I've got the joy
Activity: Add Rebekah and Laban to the family tree. Have the students use generic paper people (like Bible Friends) to illustrate the lesson. Name them and post them on a board, using yarn or dots to connect the family lines. A great source for OT family tree information is: http://bible.ort.org/books/gened2.asp
