A love of sharing your faith with children is necessary!
1. Read it Yourself: We can’t teach our children what isn’t first in our own hearts. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 first says that God’s word is to be upon our own hearts and then it tells us to instruct our children in the word. We teach them out of the overflow of our hearts.
2. Read Together: Read God’s word together as a family each day. Pick a book of the Bible and read through it one chapter at a time. Discuss what you’ve read, what it means, and what it teaches about God. As your children get older, do a Bible study together, one that takes you through a passage verse by verse.
3. Encourage them to read it on their own: Provide your children copies of their own Bibles. Discuss with them a good time and place where they can read to themselves each day. Check in with them and ask them what they’ve read and what they learned. Looking for a good Bible for your children?
