Each day consists of a short Scripture reading & devotion to discuss, a downloadble ornament for the kids to color and hang - either on your tree or on a garland somewhere - and a few songs to choose from. Many of the songs can be found in hymnals, but they can also be found on YouTube or Godvine - and it's fun to sing along! Finally, a prayer closes out this 5 minute time. This is a great start on helping your children grasp the basic outline of the Greatest Book of All.
Read Scripture: Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1-4
Songs: He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands,
How Great Thou Art, This is My Father’s World,
Before God made the Earth, there was no light – everything was dark. There was nothing to see, and no light to see it by.
When God finished creating the world, it was perfect. Even the people God had created were perfect at first – they had not sinned yet or done anything to make God unhappy. He had made a man – Adam – and a woman – Eve – to live in the beautiful Garden of Eden. They lived there with all the animals, and when God looked at all He had made, He thought everything was very good!
- What did the world look like in the very beginning? (It was dark and not formed into land)
- Even though the Earth wasn’t formed, was God there?
- Who made the world, everything in it, and even us?
- For older kids, you can point out that in Genesis 1, we have the first mention of the Trinity (make man in our image) in the Bible!
Looking forward to Christmas!
