Jesus Today – Devotions For Kids ~ Book Review

Jesus Today CoverWhat do kids need today?  Love. Support. Attention. A sense of worth.  These are just a few needs which all children – and all adults – need.  How blessed we are that God has provided us with His timeless Word!  However, I know how difficult it can be to apply scriptural truth to an immediate need!  Sometimes we need a little help.

From the author of Jesus Calling comes a new devotional for children ages 6 to 10.  Jesus Today – Devotions for Kids is aptly named!  Each brief devotion introduces an issue or problem common to kids, then applies scriptural truth to the situation in an easily understood paragraph or two.  It is very practical, written in language that early elementary children will understand.

Written out on the second page are three to four Bible verses which support the concepts discussed in the devotional.   I like this, because although we want our kids to “feel good” about God, Jesus, the Bible, and life in general, sometimes reality is not “good.”  We need truth for the hard and painful times.

When you are trying to drift off to sleep, all kinds of thoughts can come flying at you from different directions.  How will I do on that test tomorrow? Is my friend mad at me?  What is that shadow in the corner.  It’s easy to start to worry.  Grab hold of those thoughts and toss them to Me instead.  Give all your worries to Me, because I care for you.

 Jesus Today – Devotions for Kids features 150 numbered, 2-page devotions for you to read to your child.  Good readers could read the book themselves.  The devotion also opens up a great opportunity to talk to your kids about issues or questions they may never bring up on their own.

I recommend this resource for those parents who would like to help their kids apply their Sunday School lessons to everyday life – the good, the bad, and the ugly!
