A little servant girl and the proud general (day 26)
The story of Namaan being healed of Leprosy is on page 136 of "the Jesus Storybook Bible." I like how Sally Lloyd-Jones points out Namaan's pride, and how God wanted to heal Namaan's "leprosy of the heart" as well.The kids wanted to sit in boxes and take turns pushing each other around. They were supposed to pretend to be Namaan riding in a chariot. Then we acted out the story. Later tonight we plan on acting out the story for bath time. I am going to rub chalk or something easily washable on their skin, to pretend it is the leprosy. Then, when they "wash" they will be "healed."
the point? "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Proverbs 3:34
