As a mother, I understand it may be hard to teach children about God. Children can get bored easily and they don’t really have long attention spans. I still struggle, till this day, to get my children to always want to listen about God, but it doesn’t stop me from trying.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. -Proverbs 22:6
No matter what the issue, though, it’s still important to teach your children about God and these tips will help you do just that.
Take them to Church
One of the best ways to teach children about God is by taking them to church. Church is a great place for kids to experience and feel God’s love. Most churches offer sabbath schools before church service that help teach your children stories about God.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. -Matthew 19:14
Whenever you take your children to church, I always suggest making sure you are there too. It’s important for kids to see that God is important in their parent’s life, as well as theirs.
Read Them Bedtime Stories
One of the easiest ways to learn about the Bible and the stories in it come from simple bedtime stories. Since there are so many children Bible story books about the Bible, I highly suggest reading one story, every night to your child at bedtime. Reading just 1 story, every night for a year, will teach your children 365 Bible stories!
Reading bedtime stories about God at nighttime is also a great way for parents to learn too! I can almost guarantee most Bible story books for kids have at least one story from the Bible most people don’t know.
Do Children’s Bible Studies
Doing Bible studies with children is only really a good way to teach older kids about God since younger kids, most likely will have no idea what they are doing. The internet offers many different Bible stories for kids to learn about Him.
I recently purchased my children a set of these Bible Studies and I love them. They teach them the little things about that Bible in a way they can understand. These studies are also available in a Children’s Bible, too!
