Good SUNDAY Morning!!

The Book of Leviticus

I found this cool video that kind of covers the topics we have been learning about throughout Exodus and Leviticus. It might be more for the older kids - SO, if you are younger, if you want to, you can go ahead and pass on by the video and go right to the fill in the blanks. You don’t need the video to answer the questions below the video.

Bible Lesson: To fill in the blanks, read the scripture written below each of the questions.

1. Aaron was to __ __ __ __ __ and then put on his special, HOLY clothes. (Leviticus 16:4 “…These are holy garments, so he must bathe himself before he puts them on.”)
2. Aaron took ___ ___ ___ male goats from the community. (Leviticus 16:5 “He is to take from the community of the people of Israel, two male goats…”)
3. He placed them before God and he ___ ___ ___ ___     ___ ___ ___ ___. (Lev. 16:8 “He is to cast lots…) What does it mean to cast lots? One way to cast lots would be to have two stones in a bag. One would be black and one red. They might say something like, “If the red stone is chosen, this goat will be the one that will be sacrificed.”
4. One goat would be an ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___,  and the other would be sent out into the dessert to carry the ___ ___ ___ ___  of the people. (Lev. 16:8) “He is to cast lots to determine which goat will be reserved as an offering to the Lord and which will carry the sins of the people to the wilderness of Azazel.”
5. Aaron laid both hands on the __ __ __ __ of the live goat and confessed the sins of Israel. All their sins were put on the goats' __ __ __ __. Aaron would then send the goat away into the desert to carry the sins of the people away. (Leviticus 16:21 “He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites—all their sins—and put them on the goat’s head.)


Proverbs 18:18 “Casting the lot settles disputes and keeps strong opponents apart.”

Would you like to try CASTING LOTS?

Get one straw for every sibling in the house. Pray and ask God to show you who He would like to choose to serve HIM and your family today. Cut the straws all in different sizes. Put all the straws in one hand, and level out the tops of the straws so no one knows which straw is the shortest. The one who picks the shortest straw is the one that does the lunch dishes for the family. (OR, maybe, you will want a job for all of the straws? The one who gets the longest straw sets the table, etc.)



Father, first, I thank you for sending JESUS to pay the price for our sins so that we can come close to you. Thank you, Jesus!! You are awesome!! And today, I take a moment to ask your Holy Spirit to show me where I have sinned.  (Take time to listen to Holy Spirit, boys and girls. Confess the sins He shows you that you have done.) Today, I confess my sins, and I apply the blood of Jesus to my sins. Please wash them far away from me, and bring me closer and closer to you. And God, I also want to do things your way. So, I forgive all the people that have hurt me and committed sins against me. (Name the people who have hurt you, if you want) I forgive them and I ask you to forgive them, too.  Cover their sins with your blood, Jesus, and make them clean so that they can come close to you, too. I pray all this in the name of Jesus. AMEN.
