5 Objects To Use When Teaching The Bible - Toddler Tuesday

Objects from around your house and toys that you may already have can be used to teach the Bible. Taking a few minutes to sit with your toddler exploring the object and talking about the Bible can be a sweet and simple part of daily life.

Bible Verses For A Parent's Heart In 2015


1. Grow in Grace
"But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen." 2 Peter 3:18 KJV
  • Instead of striving to be perfect parents and have perfect kids, we can grow in grace.  We will never achieve the goal of being perfect parents but we can enjoy and grow in God's grace. 
  • Our salvation, and our children's salvation isn't based on our perfection, but it is through God's grace in Jesus Christ. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:" Ephesians 2:8
  • Together with our children we can grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (Check out the teaching series this year "Jesus Christ Our Savior".)
  • For more on this topic read Ephesians 2:1-10, Titus 2:11-15, and Titus 3:4-7
