Kids in the Word: Discipleship

The Pelsers

Jonathan has continued to sleep with his Child Training Bible. He likes to read it before he goes to sleep. He has been making a song out of the list of the books. He also said he has read Haggai, Malachi, Romans, Acts, and who knows what else. Oh, that’s reading in his head, not with his mouth by the way.

Is he really reading? Honestly, I’m not sure. But, here’s the point. He’s learning to respect and treasure the Word of God. He’s learning that time in the Word is important. He’s learning that the words in the Bible are from God and lead him to a deeper relationship with God.

It’s just part of child training. The life-long process of discipleship.

Last week I said I needed a sign. I decided to make it and share with you:
