Kids Need God

A child’s basic outlook and attitude toward life is shaped by the way he or she pictures God.

The Situation: Children ask, “What is God really like?” Schools, friends, television, and other sources expose children to a variety of ideas. Much of what kids hear about “god” does not even resemble the God who reveals Himself in the Bible.

The Solution: God delights to reveal Himself to all who seek Him. Knowing the Lord personally and enjoying His greatness is the highest privilege of every Christian. The Bible is the one inspired place to find out about God—His personality, His attributes, His Names, and His character.

What You Can Do: Change what a child focuses on and change a life! Introduce your child to our awesome God. Each week, explain and discuss one of God’s attributes, names, or character traits. Encourage your child to know God truly and intimately. Just as a jeweler delights in each facet of a beautiful diamond, your love for God grows as you examine each aspect of His character.

Additional study: (1 Chronicles 29:11; Proverbs 2:4-5; Acts 17:24-25)

Most children learn Bible stories and key characters from their Sunday school or children’s church experience. But they also need to understand the eternal principles of God’s Word, and even more importantly, to know Him and to make Him known.
