Teach your child about God’s word and establish the practice of reading and memorizing scripture as a household.
“All scripture is given by God. And all scripture is useful for teaching and for showing people what is wrong in their lives. It is useful for correcting faults and teaching the right way to live.”
2 Timothy 3:16
Tips for Helping Your Child & Family Dig into the Bible:
Model it: You cannot pass on to your child something that you don’t have. Schedule regular bible reading where your kids can see you. Sign up for a bible study or join a small group.
Use as a guide: Show your child how the Bible can be used by a guide when seeking wisdom.
Keep it simple: Choose a verse to focus on weekly or daily.
Be creative: Check out different translations or bible apps such as YouVersion Bible App, Wisdom Hunters App.
Don’t Bluff: It’s okay to not know the answer to a question. It’s an opportunity to show your child how to search for wisdom in his word and that God love us whether we have all the answers or not.
Focus on basics: Teach your child how to study and understand God’s word. Encourage them to follow simple steps to start: Read it; think about it; pray about it; apply it.
Pray: For you child to grow in love and understanding of God’s word.
