MFW Unit 12: Goat

The theme of week 12 of My Father's World kindergarten was goats. We read some books about goats and we drank goats milk. There were not many extra activities for this unit so we went through the whole 6 days worth of worksheets and lessons in 2 days. 

The Bible theme was "Jesus died for my sins". We talked about how the punishment for sin is death, and people used to sacrifice goats to pay for their sins until Jesus came as the ultimate sacrifice once for all and now we are forgiven because Jesus took our punishment for us. It is a pretty abstract concept for a 4 year old to understand, but Mercedes asked a lot of questions and seemed to get it as much as any little kid can. She loves God and trusts Him and talks to Him and about Him all the time, and that is about as much as I can hope for for her age. 

My prayer is that through these little Bible lessons we will start building a foundation for her to one day develop a solid relationship with Jesus. For now I am just enjoying her childlike faith, her innocent prayers and how eagerly and joyfully she accepts everything she learns about God.
