Did you know that your body is mostly made up of water?
Check out the chart above! Not only is water fun to splash and play in but it is essential for life! Without water we could not survive and neither would other plants and animals!
In our scripture lesson today we read the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses was doing exactly what God had asked him to do and the Israelites were trusting Moses to protect them and lead them to safety.
What happened on their journey? Why did the Israelite's become angry with Moses?
The Israelite's became scared because they had no water! They had journeyed a long way and were very thirsty! They became angry with Moses and accused him of not protecting them and providing them with what they needed.
Moses went to God!
Moses knew he did not have the answers and did not know where to find water so he turned to God. Moses asked God, "What do I do? I am scared!"
God answered Moses!
God led Moses and a few of the Israelite's to water! They remembered this as the place where they tested God and God was with them.
Dear God, Help me to remember that you are with me and that when I am afraid and in need, I can turn to you for help. Amen.
