SPREADING THE WORD
Another idea for spreading the Word among children:
I am always asking for donations of soft toys. I put verses on the toys necks, ears, waists and heads. These toys are handed out as birthday presents or as rewards in games or taking part in activities on stage. Also handed out at church to visitors with children.
Some of my favourite verses to put on the toys:
“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
(1 Timothy 4: 12)
“Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your heart.” (1 John 5:21)
“Avoiding a fight is a mark of honour;
only fools insist on quarrelling.” (Proverbs 20:3)
“You must love the Lord your God
with all your heart, all your soul,
all your strength, and all your mind.
and, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.”
“The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
