MEMORY VERSE: “If you love me, you will obey my commandments.” John 14:15 (GNT)
BIBLE STORY: Josiah Obeys God | 2 Chronicles 34:1 – 35:19
This month we are learning, “The Bible teaches me to obey.” God gave us the Bible and He wants us to obey His word!
We will learn the story, “Josiah Obeys God” in 2 Chronicles 34:1-35:19. When King Josiah read a scroll of God’s word to everyone, they decided to obey. God wants us to obey His word, too! God gave us the Bible so that we could learn more about who He is and how we can obey Him. When we read about His Word in the Bible, we will learn how to obey. The Bible teaches us to obey!
We made a Bible story mat to help us remember the Bible teaches us to obey. Place the Meal Time Bible Story Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your child:
- Who is the king reading from the scroll? (King Josiah)
- What does the Bible teach us in Josiah’s story? (The Bible teaches us to obey.)
Say, “When King Josiah read God’s word to everyone, they all decided to obey. Just like everyone in Josiah’s story chose to obey, God wants us to obey His word, too! What does the Bible teach me?” Encourage your toddler to say, “The Bible teaches me to obey!”
