4 Children's Reading Plans

Love the idea of beginners starting to read with the Bible. But how do you pick the right passages? How can they understand it? And how can you build consistency? These are all valid questions. Many of the guidelines for great kids’ devotions start with a level of simplicity that we as adults sometimes take for granted.

Get an age appropriate, easy to read translation of the Bible. NIV, NLT or ESV are great for kids.
Encourage your child to write or draw in a journal answering: “What is happening” & “What is God telling me”?

4 – CHILDREN'S BIBLE READING PLAN 43

Ten minutes is a great goal for a beginner’s reading time. Consider the following 4 basics when encouraging kids toward establishing a 10-minute Bible reading time.

Basic 1Kids can read the Bible. 
We take this fact for granted. The fact is that for centuries people did not own Bibles. Now we have Bibles in a variety of formats for all ages and kinds of people. Recommend Christian Book. Com for Children’s Bibles.

Basic 2Kids can learn to apply Bible teaching to their lives. 
God will use the Holy Spirit to draw kids to God, convict them of sin, and affirm the truth. This is where explanation and devotion—which makes the Bible real and applicable to the everyday life of your child—is crucial.

Basic 3Kids can learn truths about God and Jesus.
 In other words, our children can also be little theologians. They can talk about God, learn what the Bible teaches, and share the gospel message with others. They can build faith as they spend time with God each day.

Basic 4Kids can pray to God (talking and listening). 
Think about it. The Supreme God of the Universe wants to keep an open line of communication with our kids. Teach kids to talk to God and listen.

So how do you help your kids stay in God’s Word? Check out the following things you can do to help teach kids to have a daily time with God:

  1. 1. Pray and ask God to be with your time in His Word and invite God to speak to you through your reading.
  2. 2. Model to kids how to have a quiet time with God. Have a quiet time together so that a child will understand.
  3. 3. Treat the Bible with respect as you handle and carry it, affirming its trustworthiness, authority, and reliability.
  4. 4. Read a passage out loud together.
  5. 5. Ask kids what they think the passage means.
  6. 6. Memorize important verses.
  7. 7. Talk about what actions God is telling you to take as a result of your Bible reading. Take action where God tells you to take action!
  8. 8. Respond to God in prayer.
  9. 9. Journal about the things you are learning and God’s answers to your prayers. Thank God for answering your prayers.

Notice how this starts and ends with prayer and opening yourself to God speaking and your taking action. What great lessons for our kids! It is even better to take this journey together and read the same passages and talk about them together.
