Yesterday we met and discussed how to teach and share the Bible with children in age appropriate ways. A lot of wisdom was in that room so I thought I'd share some of the thoughts and resources I learned about there, plus a few more. Personally I am a fan of teaching Jesus first, hence all the Parenting In Christ books. Seeing and getting to know Christ in you will have profound effects on how they come to see and accept (or reject) the scriptures and lessons they learn, even into adulthood. Below I've included some additional resources for parents to help them educate preschool and elementary school children. You can guide your children through scripture - building them up in essential truths without also having to deal with subjects like gouging out eyes, adultery, murder, etc.
Author of the "Parenting In Christ" Bible study/ discussion guide series, Christina Dronen wrote this as a companion guide to "Parenting in Christ: Lessons From The Parables.” “Growing in Christ” challenges tweens and teens to explore the parables of Christ. The lessons in this book look at the parables and examine the treasures within that can apply to growing up into a person who lives like Jesus did.
Jesus told these parables, or stories, to teach us about who we are, who God is, and the way of God. Within these stories are hidden the secrets of the invisible world and truths to help kids grow up and mature in Christ-like character.
