Jonathan fights (deeds of David day 3)
In 1 Samuel 14:1-23 we read a super cool story about God's power. Saul's son Jonathan decided to take his servant with him, and go check out the enemy Philistine camp. I love how Jonathan says in verse 6, "Perhaps the Lord will do a miracle for us. For it makes no difference to him how many enemy troops there are." In the end, God does chose to do a miracle and he makes the Philistine troops run away in terror from Jonathan and his servant. Read the story- it is super cool!
We formed the main characters out of clay, to the best of our ability. Jonathan, the servant, and 5-6 enemies would be sufficient. However, if your kiddos love forming people, they can make as many as they want! We used cups to be the cliffs and acted out the story. Von especially enjoyed smashing the clay during the battle.
The point? It makes no difference to God how many enemy troops there are :)
