God had made a promise to Jacob and had started to work on this promise, but Jacob 

couldn’t see the whole picture yet. 

We have discussed the ways God was with Jacob, even though everything didn’t work out exactly as he would have liked it to. God blessed him in his life. 

Jacob had to trust while he waited for the whole picture to appear. We have used a real ladder to  demonstrate how a Jacob’s Ladder works. We have explored how making just one tiny movement changes every step from the top to the bottom.
