Elizabeth is a beautiful young girl who is well liked by her friends and neighbors. She has an older sister named Rachel.
Elizabeth wants to do many of the things that her sister does, but her Mom lovingly tells her she must wait until she is older before she is allowed the same privileges as Rachel. This is difficult for Elizabeth to accept. She believes she can handle those kinds of responsibilities. She does not always like being the youngest child.
One day she will be able to do many of the same things her sister does and she looks forward to that day. She knows for now she must work every day to develop patience.
Elizabeth has a friend named Deborah. They have started a club called the Good News Bible Kids.
Elizabeth of the Bible
The story of Elizabeth is found in Luke chapter 1 verses 5 – 80.
Elizabeth was the cousin of Mary, the mother of Jesus. God allowed Elizabeth to give birth to a baby named John, even though she was very old. John grew up and was called John the Baptist. He was the messenger who prepared the hearts and minds of the people for the coming of Jesus the Messiah.
God has a plan for each of our lives. He knows our every want and need. Elizabeth wanted a child and she patiently waited for God to bless her. She believed in God with all her heart and had no doubts in God’s ability to give her what He had promised.
Her personal relationship to the Heavenly Father reminds us that God will show us His plan for our own lives when we totally trust Him and wait for His timing. He always knows what is best for us.
