This Week’s Online Experience
Bible Story Focus: In the garden.
Key Question: Who’s way is perfect?
Bottom Line: God’s way is perfect.
Fewer and Fewer
What You Need: Spoons, stuffed animals, building blocks, or anything else you have a
What You Do: Sit with your child and place a large pile of items in front of your them.
As you review the Bible story, take away some of the items. Emphasize

What You Say: “Our Bible story was about a man named Gideon. He was the leader
of God’s army, and he was leading them into battle. At first, Gideon had
a large army. Let’s pretend you are Gideon and these are your soldiers.
Wow! Look at all of the soldiers you have! That’s great!
“Before Gideon went to battle, God told Gideon to make his army smaller.
Let’s take some of these soldiers away. Now Gideon has fewer soldiers.
Before Gideon could go to battle, God told Gideon to make his army
smaller . . . again! Can you give me another handful of your soldiers?
“Now Gideon has even fewer soldiers. How was Gideon going to win the
battle with a smaller army? Gideon had to decide if he would trust God
and go God’s way or not trust God and run away! Do you remember what
Gideon did? (Pause.) Gideon trusted God, and he went God’s way! And
they won the battle!
“Sometimes, we won’t understand how God’s way will work, but we can
always trust God because God’s way is always perfect! Whose way is
perfect? God’s way is perfect!”
Dear God, thank You for this family. I pray they will trust that Your way is
perfect. I pray they will be brave enough to tell others that Your way is
perfect. And I pray they will go Your way, even when they don’t understand.
Thank You for loving us and helping us go Your way. We love You, God. In
Jesus’ name, amen.
