PREPARATION

Print out a copy of the "Yare fear" picture frame and the "Pachad fear" picture frame for each child.  

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

Read the scriptures in each picture frame and then have the children draw a picture in each frame that clearly shows the difference between “Yare fear” and “Pachad fear”. Use colored pencils or markers to make your picture interesting.

As the children work on the "Yare fear" project, explain to them that because we are "descendants of Jacob" when we accept Christ, this picture could be a representation of "you praising and showing God honor."

Yare fear means to stand in awe, reverence, respect and recognizing the power and position of God and giving Him proper respect.

Pachad fear means to fear, dread or feel terror.
