Bible Story: Aaron Helps Moses ● Exodus 17:8-13
As a family, watch this week’s video and then discuss a few questions together.
Question #1: “Who was today’s Bible story about?” (Moses, Aaron, Hur)
Question #2: “What happened in the Bible story?” (When some mean people came to attack the Israelites, Moses went up on a hill and held up the staff of God. In order to win the battle, Moses needed to hold his staff up the entire time. When he started to get tired, Moses’ brother, Aaron, and his friend, Hur, held his arms up, and the Israelites won!)
Question #3: “What does today’s Bible story teach us?” (I can thank God for family who help us.)
