  • The Heavens declare it... the skies proclaim it... what is it?

    “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” – Psalm 19:1

    The Psalms are songs of worship. They call us to praise God for who he is and what he has done. They remind us of our great dependence on him. And they lead us into his presence. Psalm 19 begins with these famous words, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Psalm 19:1). 

  • Was Eve really Adam's "helper" ?

    After you’ve established our human need for relationship, note how God created a ‘helper’ for Adam. This word, ‘helper’, that scripture uses to refer to Eve does not mean someone who is inferior. In fact, a number of Old Testament passages actually use this same word to talk about how God was Israel’s ‘helper.’ A ‘helper’ in the Old Testament comes alongside someone and helps him accomplish the things he needs to accomplish.
  • Why does a man leave his father?

    “That’s why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife. The two of them become one.”  
    The book of Genesis records many beginnings. We read about the beginning of creation and the origin of humanity. We find out about the first sin, the first cities, and the first people. And in the midst of all that, we also read about the very first marriage. It’s a marriage that serves as a pattern for every other God ordained marriage. 

  • Matthew 6:33: Part Two

    After you’ve helped them understand the idea of ‘worrying’, read what Jesus says in Matthew 6:25-32. Ask them, “How does worry help us? Does it solve any problems? How might it even make our problems worse?”
  • Are you stressed? Can God help you? How to explain worry to a Child

    It’s been said that the Bible is shallow enough for a child to wade into it but deep enough for a scholar to drown in. What does that mean? The Bible can be approached in many different ways, and in many different depths. We can get just a taste, or we can also dive right in. It's that powerful.
