Our Story tonight takes place in Ireland, during the time of the Great Potato Famine from 1845-1861

슬라이드 18:

During this time the people of Ireland ate mostly potatoes for their food

슬라이드 18:

But in the great famine, something bad happened to their potato crops Potato Fungus

슬라이드 18:

The people entered into a terrible famine the Irish people remember as “The Great Hunger”

슬라이드 18:

There is a monument in Dublin, Ireland to member this important event in Irish history

슬라이드 18:

So our story takes place during this terrible famine in Ireland… The Father of this family is a Coal Miner

슬라이드 18:

Everyday he would go to work in the Coal Mines They “see neither Sun nor Sky”

슬라이드 18:

Everyday, when it was time to eat his lunch the Father would separate and go eat his alone… Why does he always eat alone? He must have something good to eat…

슬라이드 18:

Day after day this would happen… I’m going to find out what’s he got in his lunch bag. He’s hiding something good…

슬라이드 18:

So his fellows let their curiosity get the best of them and they went in Father’s lunch while he was working…

슬라이드 18:

They were surprised to learn that the Fathers lunch only consisted of Potato Peels

슬라이드 18:

They found out the Father ate the potato skins so that his children could eat the meat of the potato for their lunch… I love you 

슬라이드 18:

The wonderful thing is that we now know that the potato peels are full of nutrition, so as the Father was making his sacrifice he was being blessed with good health  Oh, Thank You God!  The Potato Sacrifice

슬라이드 18:

This is what Jesus teaches… In Sacrificing for the Good of Others, Yourself will be Blessed

슬라이드 18:

Do you Understand? Often, we resist making the sacrifice God intends to use to save OUR life
