Kids and their God-Given Capabilities
At our recent training for volunteers for the Bible Quest program at our church, we mentioned that we have the kids put the Bible Quest Review Card Game cards in chronological order. One of the volunteers looked up, amazed. "They can do that?" she asked. I have to admit that they aren't always perfect in how they put them together (we haven't done it that much in class), but they're getting better and better at it. The answer is "YES THEY CAN!" Kids absorb information during the grammar stage of learning at a CRAZY pace (just consider how quickly they learn the English language from almost NOTHING)! God has designed humans to take in and memorize HUGE amounts of information in the younger ages... let's maximize that time by giving them God's Word verbatim and knowledge of the Bible!
