Bible stories are more important than most people think. And here is why…
The education of our children is a crucial aspect that must not be neglected. The education process starts very early in the child’s life because that’s the time when the kid defines his or her beliefs. The ideas taught in childhood have an everlasting impact on the future adult.
Parents often have difficulties in teaching their kids the differences between the good path and the bad one in life. Furthermore, the parents who do teach their kids such concepts have a hard time explaining their meanings.
Bible stories will help your kid understand each and every bible lesson, easily, quickly and in a very fun way. These stories are a great way to teach your kid the good way in life. But what happens when you have a 9 to 5 job and you really don’t have any time for your kid’s education?
Today’s technology comes to your aid. You can buy a few audio CD’s with Bible stories and play them to your kid each and every night before bedtime. Alternatively, you can buy movies with bible teachings. And if you have a little spare time there are available a variety of colored cards and PowerPoint presentations with Bible stories. The advantage here is that such cards already have all the Bible lessons explained, so any kid can understand them. You just have to present the material in a fun and entertaining way.
While you can do all the teaching yourself, it’s best if you’ll let your kids attend Sunday school. There, they will hear about these stories from the Bible but at the same time they will make new friends and they will participate in a variety of Bible themed activities that develop his/her creativity and imagination.
The reality is that most people that consider themselves Christians have never read the Bible and don’t even try to give their children the proper education for a good and honest life. This is a big mistake on their part because bible stories prove to be not only a teaching tool but also a spring of inspiration for both the kid and the parent. Such stories can tighten up the relationship you have with your kids while teaching everybody a valuable life lesson.
I hope this article increased your awareness on how important Bible stories are and how you can teach them to your kids.
