But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”Matthew 19:14
In the passage above, Jesus reminds us that the Kingdom of Heaven is (also) for the children! One of the best ways to expose our kids to this kingdom is through reading the Bible regularly, and one of the best ways to do that is through a daily devotional. Devotionals provide bites of the Bible for your children to sit with and extra explanations or prompts to help them learn the truths of God’s Word.
Here 5 daily devotionals to help your children engage with God’s Word:
