Helping Children Understand the Bible

Have you tried to tell your child the story of David and Goliath? That story is about faith, knowing the promises of God, and standing strong in faith. This story is one that is good for a child going into school, having problems with other children, or a child that is starting daycare for the first time.

Noah’s Ark is one of the coolest stories in the Bible. It shows that God wanted two of every animal to save them from the floods. God has a meaning for every animal that is on this earth. It also talks about the rains that God put on the earth. Showing pictures of the ark will make this story even more interesting.

The story about how God split the sea is another good one that you can share with your children. It shows that God will protect you and save you, His child and bring you out of any situation you face.

One of the best ways to teach your children the stories of the Bible is to take those stories and make them age appropriate. For instance, the story of Jonah and the Whale, is a great story that can be told in a way that children of all ages will enjoy.

There are many stories in the Bible that will teach your children something special that is important in what they are going through at that very moment.

When you are a child, understanding the Bible can be a challenge. The words are different than what they are used to. The words also have different meanings compared to what you are used to.

When you use the stories in the Bible and make them age appropriate, you will have success. When you make the Bible fun, the kids will be more apt to learn.
