I recently received a children’s “Christmas Gift Giving Guide” in the mail. Page after page had the latest, greatest, and most popular toys and gadgets for kids. Many would appeal to my grandkids—especially the Lego sets—and I can imagine them having hours of creative fun. However, none of these gifts can come anywhere near to doing the following for them …
What are all the above referring to? God’s holy Word—the Bible. Yes, Legos and other toys, crafts, and gadgets are fun to give to the children in your life, but also consider gifts that will serve to help them read, study, understand, and treasure God’s Word.
That is why Truth78 is pleased to offer a very different kind of giving guide: The Family Discipleship Gift Guide. The resources target various age groups and include a range of ease of use—from extremely simple read aloud stories to more formal Bible instruction and from simple parenting tools to deeper discipleship training.
So before you fill up your gift-giving list with an endless array of temporal pleasures for children, be sure to include some God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated, discipleship-oriented resources at the top of the list. Helping children discover the riches of God’s Word is a gift that will truly keep on giving for a lifetime as they find in it the source of unshakable, all-satisfying, never-ending joy!
