Herod was the king when Jesus was born, and needless to say, he wasn’t thrilled to hear that a new king had been born. In fact, he was so mad he wanted to kill Jesus! The good news is, God kept Jesus safe. Read about what happened in Matthew 2:1-12.
Thankfully, God promises to help us, too. Psalm 46:1 calls God a refuge, which is a place where people can be safe, kind of like a fort. Use things you have in your home (like sheets or pillows) to build a fort with your family. When you finish, climb inside and share different ways God has protected you.
