"In today's tale, we learn about a problem that Abram and his wife, Sarai, were facing," Mama Otter explained. "Sarai was unable to have children and they both wanted to have a family."
Papa Otter continued, "Sarai came up with a plan and told Abram to have a child with her servant, Hagar. This way, they would have a family and the promise that God made to Abram about having many descendants could come true."
Mama Otter said, "But things didn't go as planned. Hagar became proud and Sarai became jealous. This story shows us that sometimes, when we try to make things happen on our own, it can cause problems and make things worse."
Olivia asked, "What else happened in this chapter?"
Papa Otter replied, "God came to Hagar and told her that her son would be the father of a great nation. God also told Hagar that he was with her and would take care of her."
Mama Otter added, "This story teaches us about the importance of trusting in God and letting him lead our lives. It also shows us that God is with us, even in our struggles and difficulties."
Olivia smiled and said, "I will always trust in God and let him lead my life, just like Hagar."
Papa and Mama Otter hugged Olivia and told her how proud they are of her for understanding the story and what it means.
Lesson: Genesis chapter 16 teaches us about the importance of trusting in God and letting him lead our lives. It's a story that reminds us that God is with us, even in our struggles and difficulties, and that he will take care of us.
