How do we inspire a love for the Bible in our children, while dealing with its dark side? The people, events, and stories reflects topics we might not be ready to talk to our kids about.
We read a Children’s Bible to our kids as well as allowing them to listen the NIV Audio Bible Dramatized CD. They love it! The first time we played it on for our oldest, he walked around the house listening to the entire book of Genesis! My Bible School students have nothing on my son!
Granted, after this, he had some very interesting questions for us out of Genesis. Do we need to protect our kids from the reality the Bible shows us? I mean there are certain questions I would rather not answer.
I would rather have my kids learn about the dark side of life from the Bible, than the playground.
