Kids Say the Greatest Things

January 6, 2011

I was heading toward the lobby on my way out of the building Wednesday night when I walked past one of my Sunday morning Kindergarten Bible class kids. With a wide smile, she talked to the preacher. He was bent over and listening intently so, curiously, I drew closer.

I couldn’t help grinning as I heard her recite the books of the Bible. She made it through the Old Testament and once she hit the New Testament, it was a breeze.

I’ll admit that I’ve only been able to recite the OT for, maybe the past 6 years. The New Testament was always easy since it was set to a song but I’d never heard the OT in a tune until about 6 years ago. So, with open Bibles and willing minds, my class and I set out to learn the entire books of the Bible.

We did and with each year and group of kindergarteners that came, we continued to study them.

I am so proud of these 5 and 6 year olds for being able to recite the entire books of the Bible. Many adults can’t even do that!

Here are a couple of other kids (not mine) who do a great job of telling what they’ve learned about the Bible.

Take this as proof that your kids can understand Scripture. They just have to hear it first so get busy and have fun.

There is nothing more rewarding than teaching the Word of God to children.

Have a great week!

    One of my favorite professors was Dr. Tom Olbricht.

    He was quite an Old Testament guy. More than one of my friends swears that they heard him in class singing, “Matthew, Mark, Luke and John…” while looking for a New Testament book.

    I do pretty well with reciting the books, though sometimes 1 & 2 Hezekiah throw me off
