- Do not communicate to children knowing and walking with Jesus is something for adults. When we "reduce" teaching children about Jesus to just telling them, "stories" and barely open our Bibles, we communicate to children the only thing they can understand or be interested in as a child is the "stories". However, the truth is children can learn to open and use their Bibles. They can learn to know and walk with Jesus as children. They can live god's Word in their everyday lives. Do not give them the impression those things are just for adults and "stories" - they have heard over and over - are for them.
