(Part 5 of a series) This series explores two essential topics: God and people. When children know who God really is and what He says about who they really are, they can confidently navigate faith and life. Kids must know both the Lord and themselves intimately—not superficially. God matters most. Learning about the Lord is more important (and more rewarding) than anything else we can do! People matter to God. People who truly grasp what God says about their identity finally understand who they are and how to live. The question, “How Does God Relate to You?” follows naturally from

“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come” (John 16:13, NASB). See also Galatians 5:16; John 16:13. How Kids Think Children often feel overwhelmed by their problems and the choices that loom before them. They struggle with the tug-of-war in their heart: their conscience directs them to do what is right, but evil entices them to do the opposite. Many Christian kids do not know how

Just as seeds develop differently in various soil types, children respond differently to God’s Word. Some initially embrace the message, others eventually give up on God, some become captivated by the world, and still others produce a bountiful crop (see Mark 4:1-20). Six environments shape your child’s understanding of reality. Each one can cultivate health and growth, or disease and death. These environments have the power to draw like a magnet—either attracting kids to God, or repelling them from Him. True Story As a gregarious youngster, friends were a huge part of my upbringing. My Mom often told me, “Who

You love God. You love kids. You’re devoted to helping children grow in Christ-likeness. But are there ways you can become even more effective? Here are ten teaching tips that can help you become more efficient and effective. 1. Teach the Bible. God’s Word matters most, so make sure that the Scriptures remain your lesson centerpiece. As you instruct the kids, keep your Bible open and refer to it during the lesson. Show your children how to glean insights from their own Bibles. 2. Teach from “known” to “unknown.” Children are much more likely to grasp a new concept when

“I can’t take one more ‘why’ question,” Lela lamented to Martin, her husband. Lela’s day had been fraught with frustration. She and the kids had been locked out of the house for an hour; a neighbor finally called Martin who let them back in. Throughout the day, each time Lela had asked her daughter to clean up, to help her brother, or to eat her spaghetti, Marisa let out a whiney and sad, “Why?” The final straw was Marisa’s all-out tantrum. “I’m drowning here!” Lela sobbed. Martin hugged his wife, assuring her they were “doing their best.” As the holidays

(Part 1 of a Series) In this series, we will delve into two pivotal, yet elusive, topics: God and people. When children know who God really is and what He says about who they really are, they can confidently navigate faith and life. Kids must know both the Lord and themselves intimately—not superficially. “Without knowledge of self, there is no knowledge of God. Nearly all the wisdom we possess, that is to say, true sound wisdom, consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves.” —John Calvin, Institutes God matters most. The entire universe revolves around Him. The

“Turn right in 100 feet” chimes the mechanical voice. As I slowly curve into the intersection, the GPS app follows my turn. How did I get anywhere before navigation apps? Prior to the arrival of GPS, we carefully planned our trips with fold-up maps. When we got lost in-route, we asked real-live people for directions! Family vacations required diligent preparation. Even the early days of GPS-technology were often hazardous; out-of-date information directed drivers to closed roads, gravel paths, or maybe a lake!
