Hagar is Told Her Future in The Book of Genesis

Discuss with your children:

  • If they would want to know their future.
  • The pros and cons of knowing your future.
  • If you could only know one thing about your future what would it be?
  • If they would like to know if they are having a boy or a girl?
  • If they did find out something about their future would they share it with others?

Bible Talk

  • Why was Hagar told her future?
  • Do you think that at this point in Hagar’s life she has happy to know that she was pregnant with a son?
  • Once Hagar was told her future did she still have a say in it?

Homeschooling Projects

  • If you could totally control your future what would it look like? Write the story of your life.
  • Interview yourself about your life in the future. (You might want to assume that you have achieved what you would ideally like to come about.)
  • Design a business card that would best suit you in the future.
  • If you were to write an advice column what would you advise yourself to be careful of in the future.
