Whiteboard Bible 2 - Abraham
2. Family Activity – Family Tree
As an example, here’s a link to a chart of Abraham’s Family Tree from Abraham to the twelve
tribes of Israel:
Have you ever made a family tree before? Is it accessible?
YES? - Take a look at it together. How far back does it go? Do you have any stories from say,
three or four generations ago? Do you know where people came from or why they moved if
NO? - Take just a few minutes and see if you can make one. How many names can you connect?
How far back can you go? Are there gaps that would be interesting to try and fill in later?
4. Family Discussion
Is it important to know family history? Why or why not? What does it mean to be part of God’s family? How does God claim us as part of it? Part of being claimed in God’s family is being blessed to be a blessing (Gen 12:2). As a family, how can you be a blessing to others?
5. Closing Prayer
Dear LORD, thank you for the gift of creation. Thank you for creation stories that remind us of the goodness that you see in creation and the covenantal love that you have for all of your children. As you blessed Abraham and his family, bless us. As you claimed his descendants to be a blessing to others, help us to be a blessing to the world around us today. Amen.
