Object Lesson


A stack of reference or how-to books

Begin this lesson by going through the books. Ask the kids to read the titles and then guess what the books teach you.

People read books to learn everything: how to deal with the loss of a loved one, how to repair a motorcycle, how to perform magic tricks. Books can teach us a lot about life, skills, the world around us, sports, anything you can imagine.

God gave us a very special book we call the Bible. The Bible is God’s Word, given to men throughout ancient history. He gave these men the words to write so that we could know who God is and that God loves us. The Bible is filled with history, poetry and stories, all of which help us get to know our Creator.

The more we know our Bible, the more we know God. And the more we know God, the more we will know how God wants us to live. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to live a life that honors God.

Make sure the Bible isn’t just a book sitting on your shelf. Make the Bible the book you read the most!
