Reading Psalms and Playing with Fire at the Virtual EBook Fair

It's Sample Saturday again, and time for another story from the Five Minute Bible Stories Series (TM). I've already posted samples from Book 1: Genesis People Book 2: Exodus Tales Book 3: Joshua's Journeys Book 4: Psalm Stories so here's a sample from Book 5: More Psalm Stories  Since the last sample was a story about playing with fire, I decided to pick another fire story for this week.   ~ 81 ~ LEARNING ABOUT FIRE Psalm 81:11-12 “But my people did not listen to my voice; …So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.” God wishes his people would listen to him. And this little boy’s mother wishes he would listen to her. Once there was a little boy called Toby who’d only just learned to walk.

They've built and furnished God's temple at last and Aaron's sons have trained with him as priests. Now it's time for the great sacrifice before their journey begins to the Promised Land. ~ 2 ~ THE BOY WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE (Numbers 34:20, Leviticus 10:1-2) There was once a boy called Shemuel who loved to play with fire. He lived among the Israelites, back in the time when they camped at the foot of Mount Sinai, when Moses and Joshua were still on the mountain with God. The Israelites all lived in tents. Mothers

Imagine children at the time of Moses, watching their fathers dragged off as slaves, eating a frantic meal in the dark, setting off on a trek across the desert--and what was that column of smoke ahead that turned to fire by night and why couldn't they touch it... ~ 19 ~ THE RUNNING BOY (Exodus 12:11,35-36, 13:21-22, 14:21-25) Once there was a little boy who liked to run everywhere. When soldiers came to his village, the little boy ran in and out among their animals and nobody could catch him. When strangers visited his village, he ran in and out between their carts a
