How NOT to ‘Let the [pesky] little children come!’

How to give a bible talk to kids


#1. Don’t speak in the language of children.


#2. Don’t go overboard with the drama, nor sound too excited.


#3. Don’t bend down to their level, lest they think you’re merely a peer.


#4. Finally, if they remain relentless, let them pry into your conversations, but make sure your conversations sound like this:

“Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivific!

(Twinkle twinkle little star)

In vain do I ponder thy nature specific--

(How I wonder what you are)

Precariously poised in the ether capacious,

(Up above the world so high)

Closely resembling a gem carbonaceous;

(Like a diamond in the sky)

Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivific,

(Twinkle twinkle little star)

In vain do I ponder thy nature specific!

(How I wonder what you are)”


In vain, the children will ponder! At last, they will leave you in peace!


Friends, we can exclude children from the Kingdom, in ways less apparent than the disciples of Jesus in Mark 10:13-14. Simply stop working hard at speaking the Bible in the language of children -

Use Jargon.

Be less energetic.

Remain tall and distant.


But over here at TheWordWorks, we love children! We work hard at bringing the Bible to children in a language they can understand.
