"This time, we find out about a visit that Abraham received from three visitors," Mama Otter explained. "Abraham welcomed the visitors and treated them with kindness and hospitality."


Papa Otter continued, "The visitors told Abraham that Sarah would have a son and that this son would be the fulfillment of God's promise to him. 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 said, "This story teaches us about the importance of hospitality and showing kindness to others. It also shows us the faith that Sarah had in God's promise and her trust in his plan for her life."


Olivia asked, "What else happened in this chapter?"


Papa Otter replied, "The visitors also told Abraham about the wickedness of the city of Sodom and Gomorrah and how God was going to judge the people there."


Mama Otter added, "Abraham had faith in God's justice and mercy, and he interceded on behalf of the people of the city. This story teaches us about the importance of praying for others and standing up for what is right."


There's more to it," Mama Otter added. "Abraham was on a mission to find 50 virtuous men to help save the city of Sodom, but he discovered that even 10 good men were difficult to find. We need to cherish the value of leading a virtuous and faithful life. Even if it seems like no one else around us is doing that."


Olivia smiled and said, "I will always show kindness to others and have faith in God's 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.


Lesson: Genesis chapter 18 teaches us about the importance of hospitality, faith, and prayer. It's a story that reminds us about the faith that Abraham and Sarah had in God's promise and the trust that they had in his plan for their lives.
