Children automatically develop and grow physically. Unlike growing physically, we all grow spiritually or we all grow in our knowledge about God at different rates. However, we only grow in our knowledge about God when we study God’s Word and imitate Him.
Remember the slogan, “What would Jesus do (WWJD)?” In order to know “what would Jesus do,” it’s most important to teach children "what Jesus did." We know that Jesus sought God in continuous prayer; embraced and loved people; restored broken lives by healing the sick, raising the dead, and forgiving people of their evil doings; challenged insincere people; taught God’s Word, which helped people to discover God and study His Word for themselves; served and worked on behalf of people in need, often sacrificing His own needs; and equipped leaders who continued His mission and work after His death.
Scripture states, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ . . .”
~ Peter 3:18 (NIV)
