Exodus 25:8-9; 28:1,3; 31:1-11; 35:21, 25,34; 39:42-43 (Exodus 19, 25)
We kick off the month looking at how God’s people cooperated to build the sacred tent or tabernacle. We read throughout Exodus 28, 31, 35, and 39 how God chose people to work together. God could have had Moses build this on his own, but instead, God called expert artists and builders along with all kinds of people to work together to create this incredibly intentional place of worship.
Bottom Line: God wants us to work together. Sometimes we think it’d be better if we didn’t have to rely on anyone else to get a job done, but this isn’t how God created us. God created us for community, to work together and do more than we can do on our own. We hope that kids see the value in cooperation because cooperation starts with God.
