As a bit of background, some of the recent Bible lessons we have had in Kids Klub have included stories about Gideon, Elijah, and Shadrach, Meschach, & Abednego. So keep that in mind as you read what I will call a “Blended Bible Story,” courtesy of two of my 3rd grade students who randomly shared this story yesterday evening. It was a little more detailed than this, but this is what I remember:
Boy: Gideon was the leader, and he and his friends were put into the fire, but they didn’t burn up because God was with them. He sent his angel.
Girl: Yes, the angel came and hugged them and protected them…well, something like that.
Boy: Then they threw water all over them, but GOD WAS WITH THEM [he emphasized this point].
At least some aspects of all three stories we studied are mixed in somewhere, and the main point seemed to resonate: GOD WAS WITH THEM!
It’s a good thing to remember when life gets mixed up and messed up: God is with you.
