Teaching kids can be really hard! That is exactly why I was relieved when God showed me that the Holy Spirit is the Teacher! No matter how great our illustrations or object lessons, I’ve learned that the most we can do is to convince a child’s mind of something. However, the Holy Spirit is a much more convincing teacher. He can take head knowledge and use it to transform a child’s heart and life. When He speaks, He is hard to resist!

Biblical literacy has reportedly been on the decline for several years. While the whole Church bears some culpability for this development, I can’t help but wonder whether our ministry to children plays a larger role than we are willing to admit.
