This Week In Safari Babies :: God is kind.

We’re Learning… God is kind.
Bible Story: The Ten Commandments ● Exodus 19:9-11

As a family, read “The Ten Commandments” (Exodus 19:9-11) from a children’s Bible. (CLICK HERE for children’s Bible recommendations.)

After reading the Bible story, complete the activity together.

Song Activity:

  • Say, “Let’s sing a song to help us remember God is kind!”
  • Lead your toddler in singing the song below to the tune of “London Bridge is Falling Down.”
    God is kind, and He loves me.
    He loves me, He loves me.
    God is kind, and He loves me.
    I can trust Him.
  • After the activity, say, “Wonderful job singing! Who is great?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God is great!” Then lead your toddler in prayer:
    “Dear God, thank You for loving us. Please help us always remember how great and amazing You are. We love you. In Jesus’ name, amen.”


In addition to reading stories from the Bible each Sunday, we also read a book together that reinforces what we’re learning. This month, we’re reading “God is Kind” by Jamie Calloway-Hanauer. If you’re looking for a faith-based book to add to your child’s library at home, you can learn more about this month’s book HERE!


This year, our NextGen ministry is focusing on the names of God. This month, we’re focusing on the name Yahweh Hesed. Yahweh Hesed is a name used for God which describes God’s loving kindness, forgiveness, mercy, and goodness. As you pray for your toddler this week, pray they’ll grow up to know God personally.

Dear God, thank You for loving us. As my child grows up, I pray they’ll get to know you, Yahweh Hesed, and begin a personal relationship with You. Please help them grow close to You so they can know You for who You are — loving, kind, and good. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.
