The Idea Behind it:
This illustration is inspired by the recorded account that deals with
Abraham and the ram that God had provided for him to use, in place of
"But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, 'Abraham, Abraham!' And Abraham said, "Here I am." And the Lord said, 'Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.' Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him, was a ram caught in a thicket, by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering, instead of his son." -- Genesis 22:11-13
Now this illustration is in reference to God basically giving Abraham another faith test. For we find, God had instructed Abraham, His faithful servant, to offer up his son Isaac as a sacrifice. And with Abraham being the faithful servant that he was, he'd decided to do as he was instructed by the God that he'd served. And just when he was about to carry out God's instructions that very same God stopped him. For the Lord being the loving Father that He is, provided a ram for His faithful servant.
So the Lord caused a ram to be caught in a bush nearby; and this ram, would become the offering, instead of Isaac. This illustration shows that ram, and rest assured, just by the look on his face, he has a bad feeling. Just another fun creative idea for the kids to color.
