FIVE | Numbers: Choosing Trust | 4.23.17

Dear parents,

We’re continuing FIVE by exploring the Bible’s first five books. This week’s lesson focused on Numbers 13:25-33, after Moses sends 12 spies into Canaan to see what the Israelites will face in the Promised Land. Ten spies return with a negative, fearful report, but Joshua and Caleb declare that God will help them conquer the land. Because of their trust in God, the men are encouraged and confident.

Students heard that whatever they’re facing, they can choose to trust Jesus and his ability to protect and guide them.

Sometime this week, spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. You can build the conversation around these questions:

  • Tell about a time you trusted Jesus during a difficult or painful experience. How did that draw you closer to him?
  • Does thinking about consequences make it easier for you to choose wisely? Why or why not?
  • Why is fear so contagious? What fear do you need Jesus’ help to overcome?

Thanks for the privilege of partnering with you in this incredible adventure of teaching the next generation. Have a wonderful week!
