"Let's dive into the special covenant that God made with Abram," Mama Otter explained. "God changed Abram's name to Abraham, which means father of many nations."
Papa Otter continued, "God also told Abraham that he would be the father of many descendants and that his descendants would be a great nation."
Mama Otter said, "God also told Abraham to circumcise himself and all the males in his household as a sign of their commitment to God and his covenant with them."
Olivia asked, "What else happened in this chapter?"
Papa Otter replied, "God also changed Sarai's name to Sarah and told her that she would have a son. Sarah was old and past the age of having children, but she trusted in God's promise and had faith that it would come true."
Mama Otter added, "This story teaches us about the importance of having faith in God's promises and trusting in his plan for our lives. It also shows us the commitment that Abraham had to God and his willingness to follow God's instructions."
Olivia smiled and said, "I will always have faith in God's promises and trust in his plan for my life, just like Abraham and Sarah."
Papa and Mama Otter hugged Olivia and told her how proud they are of her for understanding the story and what it means.
