Lesson 1: Abraham listens to God

Readings: Genesis 22: 1-9

God kept His promise to Abraham and Sarah and gave them a son. They loved him very much. One day God told Abraham to take his son to a mountain, and there to kill him as a sacrifice to God. He wanted to see if Abraham loved Him or Isaac more. This made Abraham very sad, but he obeyed God’s word because he loved God even more than he loved Isaac. He knew he could trust God for everything.
