Hello boys and girls! Today we are once again going to visit Noah. He now has many animals on his ark. What kind of animals were in there? Let’s go inside and see.
God led all those animals into the ark. Isn’t that neat? Noah and his family had to work very hard in feeding and cleaning these animals. I’m sure there were times when they didn’t enjoy it, but it must have made them happy when they remembered that they were doing what God wanted them to do. First they obeyed God and worked together when they were building the ark; then they obeyed God and worked together when they had many animals to care for. They didn’t stop even when their jobs got hard and smelly.
Activity: Imagine that you are in the ark with Noah and his family, helping to take care of the animals. Write down the kinds of animals you would take care of. What kind of food would you give them? What animals would you enjoy being with the most? How would you feel if you had to bathe them and clean up after them?
Prayer: Ask God to help you to work as a team with others. If there is a job you have to do that you don’t like to do (clean your room, help with dishes or laundry) ask God to help you to remember that when you work you are making Him happy.
