Reading: Baby Moses and Israelites Are Slaves (Exodus 1:6~ 2:10)
The Egyptian leaders forgot all that Joseph had done for them, and made the Hebrew people slaves because they feared them. The lives of the Israelite people became bitter and hard. This story and the God's People Enslaved in Egypt activities below will help kids see that God has a plan in spite of harsh circumstances and is always with us. Children will learn that while Israel’s slavery was real, it is also a picture of the slavery to sin all people experience.
Moses’ story begins long before he was even born. Jacob and his 12 sons had settled in the nation of Egypt. Pharaoh had given them some of the best land, so their family had prospered. Eventually Jacob and all of his sons died, but their families continued to grow. After awhile a new man became Pharaoh, one who didn’t know Joseph. He saw that the Israelites were becoming numerous and he got scared. He thought for sure the people would grow in number and eventually be able to overpower him! So he came up with an evil plan.
Pharaoh’s evil plan was to have all the Hebrew baby boys killed. If there were no baby boys, they wouldn’t grow into strong men who could take over Egypt. That was Pharaoh’s way of thinking anyway. But you know what? God is bigger than Pharaoh, and stronger too! God had a plan to save a very special baby boy named Moses, who would later grow up to be a great leader of the Hebrew people.
When Moses was born his mother saw that he was a very fine baby, and she hid him from Pharaoh for three whole months. Can you imagine trying to hide a baby for that long? When Moses’ mother could no longer keep him hidden she found a reed basket and coated the inside with tar so it wouldn’t leak. She placed Moses in the basket and set him afloat on the Nile River. His big sister Miriam stood on the bank to see what would happen to him.
