Always Relate Story to Bible Themes

Spiritual comfort comes to us indirectly. We must think about the foundational truth; God the Spirit then makes that truth real to our minds and emotions. Children need spiritual comfort too. They are scare of bears or the dark or whatever. So as we tell the Bible story to them, we must emphasize at least one foundational truth.

Think about that. I’ll get back to you soon. I need to stop now to tell Benjamin about Daniel and the Lion’s Den! He needs to know that God Takes Care of His Children.

    Well put… for a child to have the knowledge that GOD is the ultimate protector would give them great comfort when facing the ‘dark’, ‘scary animals’ and ‘pretend stories’. I know some adults who could use that comfort as well when facing very real circumstances. It’s great to be able to take these ‘typical’ sunday school stories (that we’ve heard time and time again) and use these truths to apply to our own lives and those of our children.
