6 Steps to a Family Devotional
Scripture says parents need to disciple their children and teach them the things of God (Deuteronomy 6:5-7; Psalm 119:6-16). The reality is that sometimes we are just short on time. How do we squeeze a family Bible study into our already hectic days?
Here are some steps you can follow. Think of it as a goal. If you don’t hit every step each day, that’s fine. Just be sure to pray and read the Bible. Try to hit the others as often as you can.
5 Tips for a Mixed-Age Bible Study
Do you have a wide range of ages among the children in your home or Sunday school class? How do you teach the Bible to such a diverse group? Here are five tips I’ve found helpful. Be sure to add any I missed in the comments below.
God promises that if we teach His Word, it will do the work for which it was intended.
“so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:11 (NIV)
What a relief! It doesn’t take fancy tricks to teach the Bible the “right” way. Simply teach the Bible. Still, it is more enjoyable for you and your children if you teach the way your kids learn. Remember to teach, t-e-a-c-h. Read more here on Mr. Mark’s Classroom.
