Bible Reading Made Practical for Kids

Recently, while sorting through some old papers, Teri discovered what we called “nickel sheets.” We used the concept to help a child, old enough to read, develop the daily habit of time in the Word. They would read a passage, usually a chapter, then write down a portion of the passage and a brief application for it in their life.

It provided a degree of accountability that they were reading during that time. The goal was to encourage reading Scripture with an understanding of application to their lives. Reading the Bible with that purpose in mind is a valuable lifetime benefit we desire our family to have.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to
be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)

  1. That personal relationship with the Lord is so important, isn’t it! The teaching to go into your bedroom and close the door has been on my heart recently too, and I know the children will develop enjoyment and a blessing as they learn to go to the Word for study, for answers, for comfort, for worship…

    The Bible is given to little ones of all ages ;-)How sweet it is when we discover the written record of some of our children’s Bible study!

  2. Thank you for this! I have an 11 year old (youngest of 8) who reads well and does what is asked of him, but this would be another encouragement for his Bible reading. I sure do appreciate such practical ideas.
