28th January Jacob and Esau

Forgiving someone can be very difficult at times, especially when what they have done has really hurt you. In the bible story today, you will see how Jacob deceived his father and took Esau’s inheritance but when Jacob was truly sorry Esau forgave him. Perhaps when someone hurts you, you can think back to the story and you can start to forgive them.

Take a look at the video from Superbook:

January 17th Abraham

Sometimes we have some difficult things to face in life but Abraham had probably the worst thing you can imagine to face when God asked him to sacrifice Isaac. There is a good ending to the story which I am sure many of you already know. Take a look at the Superbook video from You tube (It is not scary like last week).
