The bible is for everyone that believes including kids who are eager to know for themselves. However, as parents, teachers, and mentors, it can sometimes be hard to know exactly where to start and how to properly introduce religion into a child’s absorbent mind.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6
We all start with small things like saying grace prior to meals or nightly prayers asking for protection while asleep. Introducing bible study into a child’s life early on allows for children to know God for themselves and to learn and understand his promises.
Below are five easy scriptures for children to learn to help them grow and better understand God’s teachings for themselves.
