Jacob and Esau (At Home for May 3rd)

sojournkids at homeThis week’s SojournKids Bible lesson was “Jacob and Esau” (Genesis 25). Use the questions below to review it with your kids. You can also review the weekly North Star Catechism (below).

READ Genesis 25:19-34 or Story 16 in the Gospel Story Bible

ASK: How were the two brothers different?  Esau was red and hairy and loved to hunt.  Jacob was a quiet man who stayed at home.  Who would you want to be like, Esau or Jacob?

ASK: Why did Esau sell his birthright?  He was hungry.  What did he sell it for?  A bowl of stew.

ASK: How are we sometimes like Esau?  Every time we disobey God’s law we make a foolish decision, trading obedience for disobedience.

29.  Why does God tell us, “You shall not covet”?  So we will be content with what we have.
