Introduce Our Grandchildren to the Real People in the Bible

One of the important things we do to hand down the faith is to introduce our grandchildren to the real people in the Bible. But, we need to be careful we do not teach about them as just a "Bible story". These were real people who really lived. These people were just like us - they had things which made them happy and things which made them sad. They had to make the choice - just as do we - to love, know and follow God, or not. When our grandchildren learn about the people in the Bible, they are better able to understand what it looks like for them to choose to love, know and follow God.

And, like the quote above, these real people in the Bible show us God loves us and has good plans for us, even when we are not perfect, because none of us are perfect. This is a powerful and important message for us to teach to our grandchildren.

So, teach your grandchildren about the people in the Bible, but be sure they know these people were real, imperfect and greatly loved by God - just like them - and they are in the Bible, so our grandchildren will be able to know how to love, know and follow God.
