"In this chapter, we learn about Jacob and his journey to find a wife," Mama Otter explained." During his travels Jacob fell a slept, he had a dream. In the dream, he saw a ladder reaching from the earth to heaven and angels were climbing up and down the ladder. At the top of the ladder, Jacob saw God and he heard God speaking to him."

 

Olivia was amazed as she listened to her parents tell her about Jacob's dream. She learned that God was with Jacob even when he was far from home and that God had a plan for Jacob's life.

 

"And do you know what Jacob did after he had the dream?" Mama Otter asked.

 

"What did he do?" Olivia asked.

 

"He made a promise to God that if God would take care of him and bring him back home safely, Jacob would dedicate his life to serving God," Papa Otter explained. "He also promised God he would give him one 10th back from what the Lord provided him. That when we give back to God through tithing, it shows our trust and obedience in His plan for our lives. Plus, it helps others and spreads love and kindness throughout the world." 

 

Mama and Papa Otter gave Olivia a big hug and they all snuggled together. " Remember that God is always with you, no matter where you go. And when you have a special moment with God, make a promise to serve him."

 

Lesson Genesis chapter 28 reminds us that God is always with us, no matter where we go. When we have a special moment with God, we should make a promise to serve him. And just like Jacob, God has a plan for our lives and will take care of us if we trust in him.
