Introducing children to the Bible at an early age allows them to grow up knowing and applying God’s Word to their life.
Young children are pliable, eager to learn, and enjoy learning about God’s Word. Proverbs reminds us, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not swerve from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) How? Here are some simple, yet important techniques for you to try.
1. Set the example. Establish a daily quiet time for Bible reading, prayer and reflection. Share your excitement. What does God’s Word mean to you? (God’s Word is holy, living, a lamp to my feet, a love letter, sharper than a two edge sword, etc.)
