BIBLE STORY:                Lesson adapted from Genesis 13:5-18; “Abraham and Lot
                            Divide the Land” picture taken from The Beginner’s Bible
                            (green cover pages 42-43).


         Notes about reading the story:
                      Have a Bible on your lap opened to Genesis 13.
                      Introduction: In your house, do you sometimes fight with your borther or
                      sister over something that both of you want to play with at the same time?
                      Some things are easy to share. Other things require that you take turns.
                      Today’s story is about some people who were arguing and fighting over
                      something that was very hard to share. In Genesis chapter 13, God uses
                      Abraham to help solve the problem so that everyone is happy again.
                      As you read: Show big picture while reading the lesson below. Point to
                      Abraham, Lot, and the servants fighting in the picture as you read about
                      them in the lesson.


         Bible Lesson:
              Our Bible tells us about a man named Abraham and a man named Lot. Lot
              was Abraham’s nephew. That means Lot was the son of Abraham’s brother
              and a member of his Uncle Abraham’s family. Abraham and Lot lived with
              their families in tent-homes. Abraham and Lot had many camels, donkeys,
              sheep and goats.
              Every day Abraham's servants and Lot's servants took the animals where
              there was green grass to eat and cool water to drink. But after awhile, there
              was not enough grass and water for all those animals. The servants began to
              argue. Sometimes Lot's servants wanted the same grassy land for their
              animals as Abraham's servants did. "This is OUR place!" Lot's servants said.
              "We were here first!" "Oh, no you WEREN'T!" Abraham's servants shouted.
              "This is OUR place!"
              Abraham was sorry when he heard that his servants were arguing with Lot's
              servants. "We must move away from each other," Abraham said. So Lot and
              Abraham climbed to the top of a hill. They could see far away. [Place hands
              above eyes to look far away] Abraham said, "You may choose first, Lot. You
              may choose the land you want."
              Lot pointed to the land where there was plenty of water and grass. "I'll move
              to that land," Lot said. Lot took his family, servants, and animals to live in the
              good land. Abraham took his family, servants, and animals to live in another
              place. Abraham was glad he had been kind to Lot.

                      Abraham and Lot had many animals. What kinds of animals did they
                      have? (donkeys, sheep, camels, goats)
                      What became a problem for them? (Not enough grass to eat and water for
                      all their animals to drink)
                      Why were Abraham’s helpers arguing with Lot’s helpers? (They wanted
                      the same land and were fighting over who was there first.)
                      What did Abraham decided? (that they would move away from each
                      other)
                      How was Abraham kind to Lot? (Abraham let Lot choose first.)
                      What kind of land did Lot choose? (grassy land where there was plenty of
                      water and grass)
                      Abraham was willing to share and be kind to his nephew, Lot. Is it a good
                      think to share with your family members? (yes)
                      Are you willing to share and be kind to the other members of your family?
                      (hopefully, yes)
                      In what ways are you kind to the other members of your family? (Let the
                      children share)


TAKE HOME APPLICATION:
Talk about sharing with family members at home and being kind to them.


PRAYER FOCUS:
         Help me, God, to be willing to share and be kind to my family.

BIBLE STORY REVIEW ACTIVITY:                    What Land Will I Choose?
         Materials:
                      Masking tape
                      Desert scene copied on tan card stock – 1 per class
                      Desert scene copied on tan card stock, reduced 50% – 10 per class
                      Mountain scene copied on green card stock – 1 per class
                      Mountain scene copied on green card stock, reduced 50% – 10 per class
                      Bag to put cards in.


         Procedure:
                      Place a line down center of room using tape.
                      Discuss: Abraham and Lot divided the land so they would each have their
                      own place to live. Abraham let Lot choose which land he wanted. Lot
                      chose the best land, leaving the dry rocky land for Abraham. Today, we’re
                      going to see if you would have been part of Lot’s family or Abraham’s
                      family. I will be Lot and the other teacher will be Abraham.
                      “Abraham” and “Lot” stand on opposite sides of line, holding the
                      appropriate picture.
                      Say: Close you eyes and pick a card out of this bag. Look at the card and
                      decide if you would go with Lot on the best land, or with Abraham to the
                      desert land.
                      Allow each child to pick a card and choose which side they should go to.
                      When everyone is settled, put all the cards back in the bag and let the
                      children play again.
                      Play as long as children are interested.
