Always Relate Story to Bible Themes
Spiritual comfort comes to us indirectly. We must think about the foundational truth; God the Spirit then makes that truth real to our minds and emotions. Children need spiritual comfort too. They are scare of bears or the dark or whatever. So as we tell the Bible story to them, we must emphasize at least one foundational truth.
Think about that. I’ll get back to you soon. I need to stop now to tell Benjamin about Daniel and the Lion’s Den! He needs to know that God Takes Care of His Children.
