When Paul wrote to Timothy he said "You, however, remain in the things which you have learned and in which you have put your trust, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from infancy you have known the Temple writings, which were able to make you wise unto salvation [deliverance] through believing that is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:14-15 WTJ*
Our young children can learn the good news about Jesus Christ. When looking at the foolish things a toddler does, it is easy to think, "He just tried to eat dirt, I'll wait till he's older to teach him the gospel," But right now we can start laying the foundation for our young children to some day believe unto salvation.
While our young children are just starting to grasp little pieces of the gospel, it is an exciting journey to walk through the day looking for ways to tell them about God and His son Jesus Christ. If you are looking for some ideas on how to do this, check out the teaching ideas on the Toddlers Page.
