Capture3-Step-Guide to Educate Children On What God Wants: Scriptures For Kids

We’re living in a world where people and governments are changing constantly trying to determine what is right and wrong. It’s true and inevitable that we live in a diverse generation. However, the more complicated things get, we often forget about the things that really matter. Let’s remember that God doesn’t change.

 

Teaching our kids the Scripture allows us, parents, to be constantly reminded of His promise and love for us. This is a great time for us to focus on teaching and practicing three important scriptures to build their foundation. Memory verses are a great way for kids to learn about God’s message to us. It would be more awesome if we can enable them to plant a solid foundation in God’s teachings through constant practice of the following:

 

1 Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments come in two parts Commandments 1-5 is about loving God and 6-10 is about loving others. We don’t only discuss the Ten Commandments as a set of rules. We also need to teach our children how God saved the Israelites from the Egyptian slavery. God wants us to live harmoniously with Him and other people. Thus, He gave us the Ten Commandments to follow in order to show our love for Him and others. Even Jesus made an emphasis on the importance of God’s law by telling us to love one another as God has loved us.

 

2 Beatitudes

The Beatitudes mention virtues which can be beneficial for kids to be able to actually know how Jesus wants people to behave without limiting growth. It teaches us how to remain humble, generous, and spread love for our brothers and sisters – to name a few. The Beatitudes can prove that our problems and hardships are temporary. There are things to keep in our hearts, even in the darkest moments. There is also a number of awesome blessings that we get from behaving in accordance to Jesus teachings.

 

3 Psalms 23

Kids will certainly love this since this passage is a great way to build their trust in Jesus by visualizing Him as a shepherd and we are his flock of cute little sheep. Through this passage kids will understand that there’s really nothing to fear as long as we stay in His presence. Leaning on His mighty power and everlasting love will show us that God indeed loves us all despite who we are. Most of us have instilled in our child the assurance that we’re committed to protecting and providing them with their needs and wants. As our kids grow up, we also learn that there’s an ultimate God who’s the most powerful among any parents. Knowing this, we have to build into our children that they need to lean into God and into His words. This verse is a perfect model to depict His love for us.

 

Now that we’ve some guides to begin with, we’ve to make sure that reading’s fun. We can use examples of daily activities in school or at home to which our kids can easily relate to. Let us refer to these beautiful words about their experience, challenges, and success.
