My grandchildren and I have been enjoying reading through the Bible using their kids' Bible. It's in the NIV version which is a bit easier for them to understand at this age. I also share other encouraging Bible memory verses with them in my favorite version – the New American Standard Bible – as well as the King James version.
Any time I visit for nap or bed time, we always read a Bible story and/or work on their Bible memory verses, as well as reading one other story. Right now, we've been focusing on pioneers like Daniel Boone, plus I just got the biography on Martin Luther King Jr.
It's so important to cultivate a lifelong habit of reading the Word of God regularly, preferably daily, in our children's and grandchildren's hearts and this is one of the ways I strive to help with that.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)
P.S. One caveat when you are buying a Bible for your grandchildren – watch the print size and color! The size in one of the Bibles they have is fine, but the print is a light brown – very hard to read for this baby boomer granny nanny with aging eye changes! I may have to get them a different Bible with darker print, just so I can read it easier. Hmmm, large print might be good too – for them as well as me. What do you think – any suggestions? 🙂
