Creative activities based on the Bible story of Gideon and the sign of the fleece

The Bible story of Gideon asking for a sign is found in Judges chapter 6. Gideon, a young man whom God had chosen to deliver the Israelites from their oppression by the Midianites, asked for a sign to confirm that it was indeed God who had spoken to him. God graciously granted Gideon's request, and even allowed Gideon to test Him further by putting a fleece of wool on the ground to see if it would be wet with dew in the morning.

This story teaches us about the importance of trusting in God's promises, and the graciousness of His character. It also reminds us that it is normal to have doubts, and that God is patient and willing to help us overcome our doubts and fears.
