Instilling Biblical Truths Into My Grandchildren – God is the Creator of All
God is the creator; He is the creator of all! He created all things. God is, was, and always will be. This Biblical truth can be instilled into the hearts of our grandchildren from the time they are very small. Teach them the order of creation and then drill them. You can have fun with this.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Isaiah 45:12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
Stress the fact that God made them in His own image and each life is important to Him. I especially like to ask the little ones regularly, who made you? Point to the world around you and the beauty we get to enjoy and ask them: Who made the trees? Who made the flowers, the birds, the sun, moon and stars, the world and all that is therein? GOD DID!
Feel free to use this pdf file that I made on the days of creation. One time I took a picture of all the littles in my class and added that picture to my lesson. They loved it! They liked looking at themselves and it was a good way to reinforce that fact that God made each of them and has a special plan for each life and that He is the creator of all!
Perhaps you heard the children’s song:
God made me
God made me
I’m so glad that God made me.
God made my fingers, God made my toes
God made my knuckles and God made my nose
God made my knee bone and God made my chin
And God made the shape that I am in.
I used free graphics from this site and made my own visualized song. (feel free to use it) There is a second verse which speaks of God’s love and Salvation, but I have not yet made it into a visualized song. The music (affiliate link) comes from one of the Child Evangelism Song Books. The littles in my class love this song! They sing it out loud and strong and it is a wonderful way to get it into their little hearts and minds that GOD MADE THEM!
I also wrote a poem based on Psalm 139 which so wonderfully describes that God fashioned us in our mother’s womb. He knows everything about us, even the number of hairs on our head. Aren’t those wonderful truths to tell your grandchildren? And they are not fairy tales!
