"Now today we will learn about a man named Abraham who traveled to a new land and lived there for a time," Mama Otter explained. "Abraham married a woman named Sarah and he passed her off as his sister to protect himself."


Papa Otter continued, "King Abimelech saw Sarah and wanted to take her as his wife, but God appeared to him in a dream and told him the truth about Sarah. The king was afraid because he realized that he had sinned against God."


Mama Otter said, "This story teaches us about the importance of being truthful and doing what is right, even in difficult situations. It also shows us the power of God's protection and his love for his people."


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


Papa Otter replied, "King Abimelech was very repentant for his sin and he returned Sarah to Abraham. He also gave Abraham gifts and land to make up for the trouble that he had caused."


Mama Otter added, "This story reminds us about the importance of confessing our sins and asking for forgiveness when we have done wrong. It also shows us the power of God's mercy and his love for all people."


Olivia smiled and said, "I will always be truthful and do what is right, and I will confess my sins and ask for forgiveness when I have done wrong, just like Abraham and King Abimelech."


Papa Otter hugged Olivia and told her how proud he was of her for understanding the story and what it means.


Lesson: Genesis chapter 20 teaches us about the importance of being truthful, doing what is right, and confessing our sins. It's a story that reminds us about the power of God's protection, mercy, and love for his people.
