BIBLE TEXT: GENESIS 26 Genesis 26:1-17
[1]And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.
[2]And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
[3]Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
[4]And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
[5]Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
[6]And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:
[7]And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.
[8]And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
[9]And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.
[10]And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.
[11]And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.
[12]Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.
[13]And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
[14]For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
[15]For all the wells which his father’s servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.
[16]And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.
[17]And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

MEMORY VERSE: Prov. 22:29 “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before king’s; he shall not stand before mean men”.
LESSON AIM: To let the children know it pays to be diligent in the things of God.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Diligence brings profit.
INTRODUCTION: Isaac dwelt in Gerar as instructed by God. He planted seeds in the land at the time of famine and the same year reaped a hundred fold, because the Lord blessed him. When the people of the land (Abimelek king of Philistines and his people) envied him by quarreling with him over the well of water he never give up. But moved to other places and keep digging for wells until he and his servants eventually dug a well and found water and with that they never strove with him. Isaac’s diligence took him to his Rehoboth (Gen 26:22)
