Fog Delay

Text- (Exodus 24:15-18) When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud. To the Israelites the glory of the Lord looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain. Then Moses entered the cloud as he went on up the mountain. And he stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights. (New International Version)
Thought starters

Have you had any days off from school lately? Up here in the north we have snow days. Sometimes you can miss school because of a power outage or maybe a water leak.

Have you ever had a day when you could go into school a couple of hours later because of a fog delay?

Does anyone know what a fog really is? It is a cloud. It’s a cloud that settles on the land for one reason or another. Two-hour fog delays happen every once in a while. Why is it a delay? Not a whole day off? The fog lifts and goes away.
The Bible has a story of a fog. (Read or tell the story from Exodus 24)

How long did Moses have to wait for the cloud or fog? Six days Moses waited before called him to class on top of the mountain. It must have been a really important class that he had to go to. Does anyone remember what Moses learned on the mountain? Moses learned many things from God, but the most important thing Moses was taught at this special school was The Ten Best Ways to Live. Let’s us have a short review of what Moses was told by God on the mountain after waiting patiently for six days.

Do not serve other Gods. Make no idols to serve. Do not speak my name lightly. Keep the Sabbath Day Holy. Honor your Father and Mother. Do not kill. Do not break your marriage. Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not want what belongs to others.

God instructed all of us that special day through Moses that these Ten Best Ways show our love for God and our Love for others. God gave us these because he loves us.

Prayer-Dear God, Thank you for Moses, for your Ten Best Ways to Live. May we remember when we have delays that Moses waited six days to learn from You. . Amen
