Why I Teach the Bible to Kids: A Word of Encouragement from The Scripture Lady

“Why I Teach the Bible to Kids” is a poem that shares the heart of my ministry. I pray that it will bless you and inspire you to continue to teach the Bible to your children.

“Why I Teach the Bible to Kids” is a poem that conveys why I work so hard at the ministry God has called me to over two decades ago. My love for God’s Word, the Bible, is profound. I truly don’t believe I could live without having His Word hidden in my heart. I believe the words of the Bible can change every person’s life who seeks to know God and a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Today, I want to give you a copy of this poem. The words to the poem are below. I have also provided a 3-page poster that you might like to have of the poem. You might want to share this with someone you know who teaches children.

Biblical literacy, is a foundational purpose for my ministry. And today, I also want to encourage you to take a look at a sample of one of my biblical literacy songs called “Won’t You Tell Me Now?” It’s a song game that you can sing and play with your kids to help them learn about important characters in the Bible.

Word to the Poem: Why I Teach the Bible to Kids

It has been my honor to teach the Bible to kids

For many, many years

I’ve watched children’s lives change

Bringing me many joyful tears

But what I do takes a lot of hard work

Day in and day out

So why is it so important

That I tell kids what the Bible is all about?

Here is my answer:

I want kids to know that God made the world

In just 7 days

From His first words, “Let there be Light!”

Creation declares God’s majestic ways

I want kids to know that through Adam

Sin entered our world and into you and me

But through the blood Jesus shed on the cross

From our sin we can be set free

I want kids to know that with Abraham

God made a promise sure and grand

So that all who believe in Jesus as their Lord

Will one day live with God in His heavenly land

I want kids to know that sin brings death

Just ask Lot’s douting wife

Who turned and looked back to sinful Sodom

Rather than pressing forward to the gift of life

I want kids to know that Jacob was tricky

And for his birthright, Esau showed little care

And that their story shows we should trust in God

To work out His plans that are just and fair

I want kids to know that Joseph was like them

Often boastful and with pride he stood

But was humbled by God and learned the hard way

What some mean for evil, God means for good

I want kids to know that Moses was a man

Who often talked to God

Moses learned God’s laws and God’s ways

Even though he was just a man, sinful and flawed

I want kids to know the story

Of God parting the Red Sea

What seemed impossible to man

By God’s power, the children of Israel were set free

I want kids to know that God used Joshua

To bring down Jericho’s walls

So they know nothing is too hard for God

No! Nothing at all!

I want kids to know about David

Who took the giant Goliath down

He became the king of Israel

Chosen by God to wear a crown

I want kids to know of the prophets

God’s messengers for what is true and right

Isaiah, Jeremiah and Daniel were just a few

MIghty men who loved God with all their might

I want kids to know all about

Jesus’ 12 good friends

And how Jesus wants to have fellowship with them

With a love that will never end

I want kids to know about the miracles Jesus did

For people young and old

These were done to show God’s power

Through all generations they have been told

I want kids to know of how Jesus gave His life

To forgive them of their sin

Upon the cross He died for all

Shedding His blood to cleanse them deep within

I want kids to know that Jesus is alive today

And through His Spirit wants to live inside you and me

To be a light to all the world

So that all may see and believe

I teach kids the Bible

For all these reasons and many, many more

That they may love God’s Word and Jesus

The One whom we should all adore.

  • I teach because I have a passion for the soul of our children. Also I love seeing the children’s eyes light up when they with new ideas. And I love doing work for Lord.

  • Dear Kathy,
    I consider it an honor and delight to teach God’s Word to the children, because I think it is the most important thing we can give them. I find when I am teaching that I am at my happiest. Also, there are so many lessons that they teach me at the same time especially about forgiveness. Young children may get angry at times, like all of us, but they quickly forgive and forget like Our Father in Heaven. This is something we have a harder time doing at times as we adults. Plus their perspective on things can be quite unique and heartwarming. Thanks 😊, Nancy
