Parents, today your child heard that God can act in powerful ways. When Moses led the people away from Egypt, they seemed to be trapped at the Red Sea. God showed His power and rescued His people.
Today we read the Weekly Bible Verse your children learned yesterday at church. It reminds us of our Life Point: God can act in powerful ways.
“We reap all sorts of benefits when we see the unity of Scripture, particularly when it comes to the exodus. It can help people make more sense of Scripture, more sense of the gospel, and more sense of the Christian life. And in everyday ways, it can help fuel our prayers, worship, and joy in the redeeming God of the exodus.” You can read more about “4 Huge Theological Challenges (and How the Exodus Story Helps)” by Andrew Wilson here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/4-theological-challenges-exodus-story-helps/
To those who have a secular, humanistic view of life, suffering is simply a part of the natural order of things; to them, it grows out of the evolutionary “survival of the fittest.” They might use that idea to justify some things like natural disasters, but it doesn’t explain evil. We also suffer because of evil and the hateful acts of others.
