Parents, today’s Bible story helped your child learn that the Bible gives hope. Ezekiel prophesied to the exiles of Judah and Israel. God promised His people they would one day return and reunite as one nation.
“Perhaps you’ve been in that place where hope seemed like a mirage, where happiness seemed so distant that you doubted you’d ever feel it again, where loneliness or grief descended upon you like a cloud. Most of us will relate to this experience at some point in our lives, and if we’ve not yet been there, we should prepare ourselves now for the dark night ahead.” Trevin Wax explains “Fighting for Hope” here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/trevin-wax/fighting-for-hope/
