There is an old proverb that says, “If you feed a child a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime." This bookmark and poster remind children that the goal of reading the Bible is not only to know information about what God did in the past but also to learn how He thinks, operates, and to experience Him in the pages today. This poster and bookmark set go along with the How to Read the Bible curriculum that has been created to teach children not only how to read the Bible but also to empower them to want to read the Bible for themselves.
The Word of God
Is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
God, as I read Your Word today,
light the path of my life so I can see clearly.
I turn to You as I turn the pages
of the Bible so that my heart can see You.
Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross.
Your love unlocks the Bible so I can understand You.
Jesus, You show me who God really is.
As I read today, I am looking to discover You.
As I read the miracles in the Bible,
I know You want to do them again with me.
I want to live like You, Jesus,
by bringing Your world into my own.
I pray that Your Word would not
only be in my mind but also hidden in my heart.
Thank you, God
